Rapper Ptah gave out the video filmed at the training ground for the shelling, under which he allegedly fell. It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the organizers of his trip to the "DNR".
“It turned out that Ptakha decided to play a prank on journalists and parody the trips of Ukrainian stars to the front line. The video, in which he allegedly came under fire, was filmed at a shooting range, far enough from the front line, ”the organizers said. They assured that they themselves became victims of this hoax.
Earlier, the PR director of the performer, Marina Evstifeeva, told the 360 TV channel that Ptakha had come under fire in the “DPR” and was not getting in touch. She said that the rapper went to the "DNR" with humanitarian aid for a week. In the published video, the rapper films himself in front of the gunshots. After that, the camera crashes. The video quickly spread in Telegram channels.
Earlier, Ptakha on NTV twice criticized the war in Ukraine and said that as part of the mobilization to the front, young people are “driven like sheep”, sick people without any medical examination.
At the end of March 2021, the Safe Internet League turned to the Prosecutor General's Office with a request to check the musician for possible drug propaganda among children. In November 2021, the head of the Investigative Committee, Bastrykin, accused Morgenstern of drug trafficking on social networks.
