Pavel Milyakov is donating all Bandcamp proceeds for own work and his Psy X label, as well as his Patreon channel, to Ukrainian causes.
The Russian multidisciplinary artist and DJ announced the move on in a series of social media posts. “Russian regime’s vile war against Ukraine should be stopped!” he told his Facebook followers. “It is important to spread the word and to donate now. 100 percent [of] proceeds from Psy X records and my own Bandcamp and Patreon goes to Ukrainian charities and self-defence needs now.” [sic]
Read his Twitter statement below.

The decision is a response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last week. A number of other labels and artists including Hyperdub will also be donating Bandcamp proceeds to Ukrainian causes. Earlier today (3 March), the UK label announced plans to donate 50 percent of Bandcamp Friday sales tomorrow (4 March) to “a Ukraine charity to benefit the people suffering there”.
