Jinjer has announced a European tour sanctioned by the Ukrainian Ministry Of Culture. The band has been given permission to leave the country as ambassadors of Ukraine to help raise both funds and awareness. Ukraine is still under siege by the Russian government, which began in late February.
"We are very honored to announce that together with the help of the Ukrainian Ministry Of Culture, that we have successfully been granted permission to travel abroad as ambassadors of our country to raise funds and awareness about the war raging back home," said Jinjer bassist Eugene Abdukhanov in a statement. "This is a huge honor for us as a band and as citizens. We will do our part to make sure that this war stops as soon as possible!
"Come support, dance and scream your hearts out for Ukraine!"

As of April, raised about $150,000 with some of the money going to a bomb shelter in Kyiv and other amounts headed to refugees in need of food and clothing.

Jinjer has also released a video for their song "Call Me A Symbol," which Abdukhanov said was filmed on the band's 2021 tour.
"I think this video for 'Call Me A Symbol' will forever hold a special and unique place in our hearts as a band. Filmed on our short but awesome European Tour in 2021 tour that almost did not happen because of the pandemic, and now released at such a dark time in which our country has been invaded and there is war on the streets of our home. I really hope this video and this important time in history gives people a new perspective that there are always two sides to everything. Good and Evil, Just and unjust – cherish the good times and face the bad head on… but never ever give up."
