Kooperativ Nishtyak (Tyumen) made their reputation as the most diverse and prolific Russian punk and post-punk band; after almost 15 years in music, they have no rivals in quality and quantity of released records, with styles ranging from gothic to Oi! to easy listening. All said and done, Kooperativ is simply the best Russian band, punk or not. Kooperativ is also the least politically correct band in Russia. This is why Kooperativ is blacklisted, most of their stuff is not distributed and virtually unknown. UR-Realist tries to breach the silence surrounding this great band.

Kooperativ's vocalist, Kirill Ryb'yakov wrote quite a few songs of another monumental Russian band, "Instruktsiya Po Vyzhivaniyu". Alexandr Andryushkin, the multi-instrumentalist, played in the great and famous Grazhdanskaya Oborona and also in Instrukciya po Vyzhivaniyu.
