Ternopil, the hometown of Ukraine’s Eurovision representatives, has been hit this Saturday night by several Russian missiles before the group went on stage in Liverpool, according to first reports, quoted by the BBC.
A military officer from the region, Volodymyr Trush, has confirmed that two people have been injured.
Ten minutes before performing at the European musical event, the Ukrainian group Tvorchi has posted on Instagram that their city had been attacked.
“Ternopil is the name of our hometown, which was bombed by Russia while we sang on the Eurovision stage about our hearts of steel, our indomitability and our will. This is a message for all the cities in Ukraine that are bombed every day. Kharkiv, Dnipro, Khmelnytskyi, Kyiv, Zaporizhzhia, Uman, Sumy, Poltava, Vinnytsia, Odesa, Mykolaiv, Chernihiv, Kherson and all others. Europe, unite against evil for the sake of peace! ”, They have published along with a video in which the group appears supporting their city from Liverpool.
