"Signing together with you" written with an image of guitar head on the top of the graffiti-covered wall in Moscow dedicated to musician Viktor Tsoi (1962-1990) and his band Kino (Literally: Cinema) at the intersection of Arbat Street and Krivoarbatsky Lane. and is considered one of Moscow's landmarks. The wall to the popular Soviet singer and songwriter, one of the most popular and musically influential bands in the history of Russian music, was first inscribed on 15 August 1990 with "Viktor Tsoi has died today" in black. Subsequently, someone inscribed a reply: "Tsoi is alive!" Later, many other inscriptions were added, including snippets from Kino's songs "Pachka sigaret" ("Pack of Cigarettes") and "Muraveinik" ("Anthill"). In 2006 the wall was painted over by the Art Destroy Project members, but the graffiti was restored by Tsoi's fans. In 2009 the Moscow authorities announced plans to renovate the wall, but the plans were met with skepticism and were dropped.
