One of Revolver's favorite rising bands, Ukrainian metal stars Jinjer are no strangers to unrest in their homeland — but never anything quite like Russia's invasion of the country today (February 24th). That being the case, the group have taken to social media to condemn the military action — and update fans as to their personal safety.

"Dear all, as we write this text, for the moment, each member of JINJER and our families are safe and unhurt," Jinjer said in a joint statement. "We truly appreciate all our fans around the globe for caring, getting in touch and for all the sympathy and support for our band and more importantly our country.

"As you all know, early this morning on February 24th, Putin started the war against the sovereign and independent #ukraine ! Please know that in this time we really depend on you, our fans in every country- to support Ukriane and peace in our country however you can- especially our fans in Russia, you and your opinion matter the most at this time.

"NOTHING can justify the violence and death of innocents, and this is exactly what's happening in our country right now.

"Stop the war in Ukraine now!"
