Until recently, Ukraine’s participation in Eurovision was in question, but now we can definitely announce that KALUSH ORCHESTRA is going to Turin and will perform live at Eurovision

Also, Kalush Orchestra will take part in a number of promotional concerts over the coming weeks and is planning to raise funds to aid the reconstruction of Ukrainian cities affected by the war. Frontman of the group, Oleg Psyuk said:

Through our speeches, we want to raise funds for the reconstruction of Ukrainian cities affected by the war. Many mass events dedicated to Eurovision are taking place now.
