Landlord serves eviction notice to Russian owners of LA record shop, Stellar Remnant

The Russian owners of LA independent record store Stellar Remnant, have been served with a 30-day eviction notice from their landlord, reports Resident Advisor.

The record shop announced this news on social media last week which read: "As the violence escalates in Ukraine so is hatred towards Russian-speaking immigrants around the globe, we believe we became targeted individuals and business," read the post.

"With our cry out for love we still receive threats and hate and people asking us to take down and not to sell any Russian artists regardless of their political views, just by simply being or associated with Russia."

Their statement adds: "We are absolutely devastated and demoralized. Our last day will be March 31st."

Previously, the store had announced that they would be holding a vinyl auction to raise funds for the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

"Growing up in the Soviet Union I would never have imagined the war between our Ukrainian brothers and sisters," one of their social media posts reads.

We do not support the bloodshed in Ukraine and do not support Putin or any totalitarian warmongering policies of any government, “another post states adding, "I think we all agree that this war and all wars on this beautiful planet must STOP."

The Russian owners, Ed Vertov and Katya Tretya are currently in legal proceeding against their landlord.
