Among the key messages of the project are #StopWarInUkraine, #stoprussia, #NoFlyZoneUA, #CloseTheSky, #StandWithUkraine.
Ukraine protects the whole continent by taking the blow from the entire arsenal of the Russian military machine. Today, the whole civilized world stands side by side with Ukraine. Our partners have imposed unprecedented sanctions against the invaders and provided Ukraine with financial, military, and humanitarian aid. This support contributes to the future of the world – if Russia is not stopped in Ukraine, other European states could be at risk. The unity and solidarity of the world are needed now more than ever. This marathon seeks to further consolidate the international community in resisting Russian expansion. The Ukrainian people feel and sincerely appreciate the support provided by our partners and ordinary citizens of foreign countries, from basic necessities to powerful military aid. But the war must end as quickly as possible, and this requires even greater support for Ukraine and ultimate pressure on the aggressor.
The world-famous bands and artists such as Imagine Dragons, Nothing But Thieves, Fatboy Slim, Craig David, the Eurovision winners Salvador Sobral and Netta, and others are also among the invited guests to address a multimillion audience. The Ukrainian artists Dakha Brakha, Ruslana, THE HARDKISS, Jamala, Go_A, MONATIK, Alyona Alyona and others will participate in the telethon too.
