The cries behind the music: Eurovision 2022

Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra captivated the audience with their performance of their song "Stefania" on  Eurovision 2022. Saturday, May 14, Ukraine became the winner of the international song contest with 631 points. Spectators from Europe and participating countries gave 439 votes to Ukrainian artists, and 192 came from the contest jury. The highest score of 12 points was given to Ukraine by Poland, Moldova, Romania, Lithuania, and Latvia. These neighboring countries serve as some of the biggest humanitarian shelters for Ukrainian refugees, with Poland and Moldova concerned about possible Russian incursions on their territory. 

I am Ukrainian, I cannot keep calm

I am writing this article not to convince readers who in this game of political chess to support. However, I would like to reach out to those who do not know how to help or what to do in this situation. I am here to bring awareness that no matter what nationality or background you come from, you can help just by sharing the word. Everyone should understand the level of aggression the Ukrainian nation is experiencing today.
