According to sources, Russian missiles attacked Ukraine’s Eurovision act’s hometown only moments before the band took the stage in Liverpool.

The regional state administration’s leader, Volodymyr Trush, acknowledged that two individuals were hurt in the incident, while Ternopil’s mayor, Serhiy Nadal, confirmed that warehouses were destroyed. Meanwhile, Tvorchi, a Ukrainian Eurovision act, came to Instagram just ten minutes before their scheduled performance at the Liverpool Arena to inform on the attack on their hometown of Ternopil, located in western Ukraine.

Tvorchi took to Instagram again after their performance to share their thoughts. She says ”

Ternopil is the name of our hometown, which was bombed by Russia while we sang on the Eurovision stage about our steel hearts, indomitability and will.

“This is a message for all cities of Ukraine that are shelled 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!”

Tvorchi’s Eurovision performance was described as “poignant” by the UK’s envoy to Ukraine, Dame Melinda Simmons.

Posting on Twitter, she added: “Reminder that the reason why Ukraine could not host this event is because Russia continues to invade and the people of Ukraine live in continuing danger.”
