A video of a Ukrainian soldier singing the song that led his country to win Eurovision last Saturday has gone viral on social media. Three months after the start of the war, Ukraine has not lost hope. In the video, recorded with a mobile phone in the basement of the Azovstal steel plant, a young man is seen singing 'Stefania', by the group Kalush Orchestra.
The song is an ode to mothers, at a time when hundreds of thousands of women have decided to stay in the country to take care of their fathers, husbands and children, forced to enlist and fight.
The folk-rap group Kalush Orchestra won the Eurovision Song Contest last Saturday, May 14, achieving 631 points between the televote and the professional jury. This was the second highest score in the history of the musical contest.
