Two friends helped him write the song, and the studio band “Paulius & Friends,” recorded it at Dynamic Recording Studio in Rochester, NY.

Volodymyr Sukhin, from Kiev, Ukraine, who lives in Columbia, MD, has recorded a new version of Putin’s War. You can listen to this new version at stayfreeukraine.org.
Klimas is a Lithuanian American activist and songwriter/lyricist. The KGB arrested Klimas’ father during WWII and deported his paternal grandparents to Siberia. He has a personal message for Vladimir Putin: “Go Home Now!”
Klimas is using music and the written word to combat Russian propaganda. His book, Yellow Green Red: A Story of Faith details how faith enabled him to publicize the plight of then Soviet occupied Lithuania in the 1980s and 1990s.
