The event was attended by Ukrainian artists who lift the spirits of millions of Ukrainians with their work, Oleksandr Ponomariov and Dzidzio, as well as Greek singers Eirini Papadopoulou and Christos Menidiatis.

At the charity event, organized by Artem Koliubaiev, Sargis Sargsyan and Elvira Gavrilova, it was possible to collect a considerable amount for the purchase of an ambulance.

Artem Koliubaiev noted: “This charity event has become incredibly important for our union. We coped with the two tasks we set ourselves: to bring Ukrainians and Greeks together, as well as to collect the necessary funds for the purchase of an ambulance.”

The blue and yellow flag was provided by Roman Bochkala, a Ukrainian military correspondent and public figure.
