Instruktsiya po Vyzhivaniyu (Instructions for Survival in English) are a Russian rock band from Tyumen, formed in 1985 by Miroslav Nemirov.


The band was formed in 1985 by Miroslav Nemirov. At their first gig, the KGB declared them to be fascists and expelled them from the Komsomol and sent them to the army. Initially, they played punk rock, but their style changed to alternative rock in 1991, around the time lead singer Roman Neumoev converted to Orthodox Christianity. In 1987, they were involved with the collective Instruktsiya po Oborone. In 1993, they joined the Russky Proryv movement.

Their latest album, Armageddon Pozadi!, is being funded by a Boomstarter (Russian equivalent of Kickstarter or Pozible) page.

Their most controversial song is "Ubit zhida" (Kill the Jew) from 1991. Neumoev has stated that the song is not antisemitic, but a Biblical reference, and that he will not play the song on Victory Day, because he feels the day is both for Russians and Jews.

The band is on the Anti Defamation League's "Bigots who Rock" list.[1]
