The concert of the outstanding pianist in Moscow was interrupted due to a report about the "mining" of the building.

A case characteristic of the current reality occurred on the evening of April 13 in the Moscow DK "Rassvet", where the world-famous pianist Alexei Lyubimov performed with a concert. In the first part, he and the singer Yana Ivanilova performed the song cycle of the outstanding modern Ukrainian composer, People's Artist of the Ukrainian SSR Valentin Silvestrov "Steps" to the verses of Tyutchev, Pushkin, Blok, Mandelstam, Baratynsky, and in the second part, works by Franz Schubert.

The listeners reported that at about 21:30, already during the second section, the police entered the hall: “Two policemen entered the hall and immediately said loudly: “Citizens, the event is suspended, there was a message that there was a bomb in the building.”

However, Alexei Lyubimov, with the policemen standing behind him, finished playing Schubert's impromptu, after which the hall erupted into an ovation. Then the audience and performers went out and waited outside, but the organizers from the House of Culture "Rassvet" said that the concert was unlikely to continue. There is no doubt that the attackers reported "mining" due to the fact that Lyubimov's program included Silverstov's works, but the law enforcement officers were a little late, so only Schubert suffered. It remains to be recognized that while in the West Russian culture is being “cancelled”, in Russia they are trying to do the same with Ukrainian culture.
