After the performance, the frontman of this five-member group, Oleh Psiuk, called from the podium in English: “Please help Ukraine and Mariupol! Help Azovstal now! ”The dog later thanked everyone who voted for his Russian-occupied homeland at the competition. “This victory is very important for Ukraine, especially this year. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Glory to Ukraine! ”Psiuk told reporters. Read more Glory to Ukraine, sounded Turin! Ukrainian Kalush Orchestra wins Eurovision The members of the Kalush Orchestra have received special permission from the Ukrainian government to travel and participate in Eurovision, as men of fighting age are prohibited from leaving the country. Their permit expires in two days. According to his own words, Psiuk is not quite sure what awaits his band, as war is raging in Ukraine. “Like all Ukrainians, we are ready to fight to the end,” he said. This year’s Eurovision Song Contest is one of the most political in recent years. Russia has been banned, Ukraine is considered the favorite to win, she wrote before the final concert, during which 25 bands performed in front of a live audience in Turin, northern Italy. Millions more viewers watched the competition on television around the world. The Ukrainian group Kalush Orchestra was not the original Ukrainian choice. The country was first represented by Alina Pašová, a 29-year-old rapper and former participant in a reality show. However, when it turned out that she had visited the occupied Crimea, it provoked a wave of outrage and was replaced by the Kalush Orchestra, a folk-rap group from western Ukraine. Their songs mix Ukrainian rhythms, costumes and dance moves with contemporary hip hop, and bookmakers gave them a 60 percent chance of winning. The song Stefania, with which they performed, was originally created as a tribute to the band’s frontman’s mother. However, since the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, it has become the anthem of a nation ravaged by the war, the AP agency wrote. The original text has taken on a whole new meaning. “I always find my way home, even if all roads are destroyed,” she says. The six-member boy band received special permission to leave the country and represent Ukraine and Ukrainian culture in the competition. One of the original members of the group has remained in Ukraine to fight, the others plan to return as soon as Eurovision ends.
