Pussy Riot claim the song’s chorus is based on the words of a captured Russian soldier, who allegedly said in a phone call to his mother: “Mum, there are no Nazis here, don’t watch TV.”

The chorus of the song is:

“Mom, I’m a prisoner. Don’t watch TV.

Mom, there are no Nazis here.

Mom, why is the war called a ‘special operation’?”

The music video for “Mama, Don’t Watch TV” features images of bombed areas of Ukraine and the band members send the message “Ukraine, we love you” while holding the Ukrainian flag. Towards the end of the video clip, one of the Pussy Riot members urinates on a poster with Putin’s face on it.

The group is calling on the international community to stop buying gas and oil from Russia, to stop arming the country’s armed forces and police, to arrest Russian oligarchs and to bring President Putin and his staff before an international court in order to to account for the “genocide against the Ukrainian people”.
