TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider says that he “absolutely” approves of Ukrainians using the band’s hit song “We’re Not Gonna Take It” as a battle cry in their fight against the Russian military.

On Thursday (February 24), Russian president Vladimir Putin advanced a military operation into in the east of Ukraine with explosions being reported in the outskirts of Kharkiv, Kramatorsk and Mariupol, as well as the capital Kyiv soon after.

Putin called for Ukraine’s “demilitarization and denazification” and also warned other countries, and members of the United Nations, that any attempt to interfere with the Russian advance would lead to “consequences they have never seen.”

Earlier today (February 26), Snider posted on his Twitter: “I absolutely approve of Ukrainians using ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ as their battlecry. My grandfather was Ukrainian, before it was swallowed up by the USSR after WW2. This can’t happen to these people again! #FUCKRUSSIA”.

“We’re Not Gonna Take It”, the biggest hit single in TWISTED SISTER’s career, was written solely by Dee Snider.
