Two kilometers in four hours, this is how we move & rdquor ;, has described the vocalist along with a series of photos and videos that show the harsh reality of war.
Bombings in Kiev
“Millions of women and children left everything, their apartments, their belongings… everything! Leaving their husbands to defend their country and running to save their children from shells […] So many victims, so many injured, small children among them…”, Jamala has pointed out, who only wants the barbarism to end. “You kicked me out of Kiev, from my flat, by bombing. And? Will you come to live there? Are you going to walk in and say “that’s it, the world is saved”? No, I don’t believe in that. I believe in our president, in our army, in our strong brave men and women. We will get it. Ukraine will not be defeated! Ukraine will not be defeated!”the singer has reflected.
