Mubasher – Eurovision 2022: The Ukrainian group, the top candidate for the competition, sings in turn

The colors of the Ukrainian flag appeared for a short time

The Ukrainian Kalush Orchestra’s performance ended with a flash of blue and then yellow, the colors of their flag. The group took part in the competition under special conditions: since February, Europe has been living the rhythm of Russia’s violent attack on Ukraine.

This is without a doubt the most anticipated performance of the evening. Ukrainians from the Kalush Orchestra, great favorites of the competition, who had to get special permission to leave their country at war and perform, translate their song in turn.
