Anatoly Yevdokymenko

, the grandson of the singer

Sofia Rotaru

, who was detained on March 7 together with other men

during an attempt to illegally cross

the state border of Ukraine, has been found.

Yevdokymenko is currently in Europe, but he did not say where exactly.

In an interview with Deep House London, Anatoly said that he "was forced to leave the country" and, given the new living conditions, called himself a "nomad":

"With the beginning of the war, I was forced to leave the country to start a new life. For more than six months now, I have been living the life of a real nomad, which taught me a lot and gave me a new perspective on life," said Yevdokymenko.

Anatoliy also expressed his condolences to the relatives of those who died due to the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation into Ukraine:

" This year was definitely the most difficult year of my life, but also the most transformative, I must say. Moreover, it was a truly devastating and tragic year for the entire people of Ukraine, my condolences to all the families who lost their loved ones in the midst of this war," Yevdokymenko said.

In Europe, the boy continued to pursue his musical career.

Yevdokymenko records tracks under the creative pseudonym SHMN.

"I have a release scheduled for early 2023 on Berlin's Poesie Musik label and I'm excited. I'm also in talks with Edu Imbernon's Fayer imprint about a possible release, which I'm also very excited about," shared the artist.

We will remind that on March 7, the son and grandson of the People's Artist of Ukraine Sofia Rotaru Ruslan and Anatoly Yevdokymenka tried to flee to Moldova on an inflatable boat and illegally cross the state border of Ukraine.

They were detained at the section of the Ukrainian-Moldovan border in Mohyliv-Podilskyi.
