Ukraine has released a video of a soldier improvising a catchy musical composition using military weapons as instruments. The ad hoc “instruments” are various small arms used by the Ukrainian military to defend the country against Russian armed forces.
In the video, percussionist Alexander Seleznov uses chains, a Stinger, a Javelin, an AK-47, and more to create a military version of the “Skysticks” beats he creates as a civilian in Ukraine. The musical weapons session was posted on Ukraine’s Ministry of Defence Twitter page.
At the end of the video, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy says: “Life will win over death, and the light will win over darkness.”
