Ukraine Eurovision winners Kalush Orchestra will tour Europe to raise money for Ukraine’s defenders
Kalush Orchestra plans a tour of Europe to raise money for the army as it continues to put up fierce resistance to Russian forces, Reuters reported.
Frontman Oleh Psiuk told a televised news conference in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv that the band would soon announce on Instagram where it would tour. “At every performance, we are going to collect funds for the needs of the army,” he said. Psiuk said he hoped Ukraine would host Eurovision next year and thanked the defenders of the besieged Azovstal steelworks in the city of Mariupol for their courage in holding out for so long.
Earlier, Kalush Orchestra announced they would auction off Eurovision 2022 trophy to raise money for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
