Τhe Head of the Managing Board of UA: PBC, Mykola Chernotytskyi, said
We believe that Ukraine’s representation at Eurovision is an important part of the country’s participation in European life. It is also our representation. The band representing the country also has an important mission to promote Ukraine. That’s why I hope that they will win,”
The leader of Kalush Orchestra, Oleh Psiuk, revealed the details of the stage costumes of the band members at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.
The panama hat will be there for sure. Blue and yellow symbols will be there too. The costumes will differ by 50%.
Oleksii Zhembrovskyi, director of Ukraine’s performance at Eurovision 2022, explained how the non-political character was ensured.
In the dialogue with the EBU, we encountered this issue several times during the development phase of the performance, and have already reworked it several times, following all the requirements. Therefore, this issue has already been resolved and will visually look decent. For the director, first of all, it is important not only to visualize the song, but also to convey its energy. The best thing for us is the strength of our guys’ spirit and the power of our native land’s energy. Therefore, all the visual effects we use will be focused on this. The spotlight will, of course, be on the artist who transmits this energy, and the visual effects will paint the ornament of the Ukrainian soul,”
Ukraine is participating in the 1st Semifinal.
