Dear friends!


On February 24 of this year, Russia, the country in which I was born, committed a terrible crime, vilely and without the slightest reason, attacking a neighboring democratic state, Ukraine.

Being (so far) a citizen of Russia, I can't and don't want to remain silent. I am against the criminal war unleashed by Vladimir Putin and Russia against Ukraine. I stand with Ukraine.


Dear friends, check out the new video of Mark Kovnatskiy: the online birthday concert with the program "Di Naye Yidishe Melodyes", consisting of Mark's own compositions! Enjoy!
