Ukraine Eurovision

 

 

 

 

 






Ukraine's Kalush Orchestra have secured a place in the final of The Eurovision Song Contest, cementing their position as favourites to win the competition.

The folk-rap band jumped to their feet, waving the Ukrainian flag as it was announced they had qualified from the first semi-final in Turin.

Earlier, they gave an energetic performance of their song Stefania.

As they finished, founder member Oleh Psiuk  said: "Thank you for supporting Ukraine.”

Support for the band has swelled since Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February.

Psiuk told the BBC a victory would send a message of support to the country's besieged citizens, and the estimated 12 million people who have fled the country.

"For our country it is so important to have victories in all ways," he said. "So if we win, it will be another opportunity to show Ukraine to the world, to remind people about Ukraine, and to increase morale in the whole country."
