The name of the person in relation to whom a case may be initiated is not called. In this case, the department reported that the man read rap on the roof of a car.

The rapper began to sing the song “Ay”, having climbed on someone else’s car, since the performance did not take place in the club.

After that, Husky transferred the performance to the Bounce club, but it also did not take place, although the organizers disclosed the place only to ticket buyers. The rapper climbed onto the car near the club and began to perform “Ay”, but he was dragged from there and taken away.
On November 17, YouTube blocked the Husky “Judas” video in Russia “at the request of government agencies”. What kind of claims have arisen from government agencies is unknown.
