For us, it’s not just a contest. This is something more important – said Nazarov, coming from Kharkiv, after the competition. – We saw tanks and heard gunshots. My house has no windows anymore. Running to the shelter with your baby in your arms is horrible. She added a moment later, I don’t want anyone to go through this.
– The most important thing is to tell the truth about what is happening in Ukraine. I hope this helps the insecure people in Ukraine at the moment. They are still in danger and are losing their homes. I hope we can help everyone in the world understand what’s really going on because we’ve seen it. We were in Ukraine only six days ago, said Nikitin.
The performance of the Ukrainian couple can be seen in the video below. Starting from: 2:58.00.
