US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday had a message for Ukraine, and he delivered it in a rather unusual but cheerful fashion. Blinken visited a local bar in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv and got behind a microphone with a red guitar in his hand to say that ‘the US and much of the world were fighting not just for Ukraine but for the ‘free world.’

Blinken joined the band 19.99 on stage, playing Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World.” This rock anthem was released in 1989 just before the Berlin Wall was felled.

The US Secretary of State played the song with the chorus “keep on rockin’ in the free world”.

The song was first performed at a time when the Soviet Union was hit by nationwide protests, resulting in the disintegration of the USSR with a number of nations, including Ukraine, gaining independence.
