A frame from the clip “Not with you”

The video lasts 10 minutes and begins with frames in which a tipsy man talks about the “defective” new generation, which “lives one day”, tries a variety of activities “like apples.” The character accuses modern youth, including his children, of irresponsibility: “They have everything in one day, but it was the same with us: he took it, chose — so be patient, like it, don't like — be patient.” In response, his 17-year-old opponent says that his generation “lives for love”.
Characters of — young people who have fun at registrations, participate in protests, run away from the police and have sex. In the chorus, the leader of the group, Yuri Shevchuk, sings:
To make it more fun and not at all scary,
Put me on a chain, pump me with money,
Pull out your teeth to make it harmless:
I'll never be with you anyway.

In May, a protocol was drawn up against the musician discrediting the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation after his speech at a concert in Ufa: the musician from the stage expressed a negative attitude towards the special operation.
