REPORT: Ukrainian Orchestra Conductor Murdered by Russians

Yuri Kerpatenko was the chief conductor of the Kherson Philharmonic.

He was also the conductor of one of the city’s chamber orchestras.

The operative word being “was.”

Kill Him

Kerpatenko refused to play for Russian leadership.

He was supposed to conduct the orchestra after Putin’s annexation to celebrate the “improvement of peaceful life” in the occupied territory.

Because he refused, he was reportedly assassinated.

Kyiv’s Ministry of Culture and Information Policy announced, “On October 14, it became known about the brutal murder of the chief conductor of the Kherson Music and Drama Theater.

“After Yuri Kerpatenko refused to cooperate with the occupants, Russian soldiers shot him in his own home.”

The office of the Kherson province’s regional prosecutor stated, “Currently, law enforcement officers are taking measures aimed at a quick, complete and impartial investigation into the circumstances of the criminal offense.”

Kerpatenko has not been seen or heard from since September.
