....while on their way to Syria (I think?) to legitimize somewhere Putin's aggressive international policy. Don't get me wrong, I really like Alexandrovci (the singing is awesome; my sister saw them once live in Prague), but this seemed almost like a just punishment. Too bad they end up being a government tool, nothing else.
Shooting the messenger(s), a tad harsh?

I'm not sure I understand. If you're talking about yourself, I wasn't shooting at you, but I just can't mention their death without mentioning the circumstances, I think that is very intertwined and it affected world wide how their sad demise was perceived.

They were merely Putin's "messengers" as it were and hardly deserved to die. Now if Putin had been in an aircrash that would have been a different matter.

That presupposes none of them had free will, no agency at all (determinism aside). And that is also a pretty condescending view! Nothing else but willing tools of a crypto-dictatorial government.
I'm sorry, that doesn't stir any sympathies in me, it is a pretty lame excuse.
