Dee Snider Calls Vladimir Putin A ‘Dictator Leader’


Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider shared an approximately four-minute video on his official Instagram account and targeted the Russian government for blocking the Russian people’s access to accurate information.

As you may know, Russia’s attack on Ukraine still continues. Russia has expanded its offensive forces in Ukraine and struck some cities in the west and center of the country. Although the Russian government faced a severe backlash and enforcement worldwide, they have been determined to continue the country’s invasion.

Various aid organizations, artists, social media platforms all launched their support for Ukraine during this process. Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider also showed support to the Ukrainian people with his social media posts. He even permitted them to use the band’s hit song, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It,‘ to react to the Russian government. His endorsement of the Ukrainian people also received so much positive reaction from his fans.

The rocker again reflected on this issue in his recent Instagram video post and called the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, ‘dictator leader,’ for preventing the Russian people from receiving accurate information on what is going on. The Russian government recently blocked Facebook, and restricted Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok, so it became difficult for the Russian people to reach accurate information. Dee Snider highlighted that the rest of the world still has many ways of getting accurate information, so they need to help the Russian people know what their government is doing to Ukraine.

In Dee Snider’s words:

“Russian people were cut off from the rest of the world. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, all these social media platforms were shut down. Russian people do not know what their dictator leader is doing to Ukraine. They don’t understand the truth of what is going on, but they can’t stop all of us. We have our websites, we have our ways of getting information out there, and if we all start working on those angels, if we all start pushing the world out there to the Russian people, the Russian people will get the message.”

Russian people can still use other apps like Youtube and Telegram, but it is still not easy for them to get a clear picture of what is happening in Ukraine. Russia tries to cut off the information especially coming from independent news resources. However, as Dee Snider stated, the rest of the world does everything to make Russian people aware are of the current situation.
