Pusha T has responded to the Ukraine Ministry of Defense after they used his lyrics to celebrate wins over Russia in the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian War.
On Wednesday morning (Sept. 7), Ukraine decided to tweet a chart illustrating Russia’s losses in the war. While Vladimir Putin insists Russia “has lost nothing” from the war, Ukraine shared an infographic showing how high the death toll has been for Russia. Bizarrely, they also used lyrics from Pusha’s 2013 track “Numbers On The Board,” taken from his debut solo project My Name Is My Name.
“I put numbers on the boards,” The Ukraine Ministry of Defense wrote on Twitter, tagging Pusha T. “Total combat losses of the enemy from Feb 24 to Sep 7:”
According to the chart, Russia has sustained heavy losses since the invasion of Ukraine on February 24. They claim to have destroyed 2,07 tanks, 4,520 armored combat vehicles, 1,194 artillery units, and 3,320 vehicles and fuel tanks. They also list losses for rocket launcher systems, air defense systems, military jets, drones, and many others. Additionally, General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine’s report states that 50,610 Russian personnel have been eliminated.

Pusha T responded some hours later, opting to comment on Ukraine’s musical preferences rather than the combat losses.
“Great taste in music for the win…” King Push penned.
