“Beatles” in Liverpool Dressed Ukrainian Vyshyvankas

In a month, England will host "Eurovision-Ukraine"

On May 15, 2022, the Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra won Eurovision-2022. From the stage of the song contest, the group's soloist called on the world to save Mariupol and Azovstal, with which Russian terrorists congratulated Mariupol, Azovstal, and the entire civilized world. Due to the military danger, it was decided to hold Eurovision-2023 not in Kyiv but in Great Britain, which has supported us since the first minute of Russia's full-scale attack on Ukraine.

With just 34 days to go until Eurovision, Birmingham, Brighton, Cardiff, Darlington, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, and Sheffield are preparing to host guests from all over the world. And today, the legendary Liverpool foursome dressed in Ukrainian national embroidered clothes — vyshyvanka.

"The Fab Four like you've never seen them before! Liverpool's famous Beatles statue has been styled in traditional Ukrainian vyshyvankas sourced from Ukraine, for some special BBC filming set to air as part of Eurovision-2023," BBC Eurovision on Twitter.

Paul McCartney himself repeatedly supported Ukraine and performed on the British and international stages with the flag of Ukraine and a yellow-blue guitar.
