This Ukrainian rock star is touring Ukraine to raise morale

This has to be the toughest touring itinerary ever. Sviatoslav “Slava” Vakarchuk is the frontman for Okean Elzy, the most successful rock band in Ukraine. He’s touring across the country performing songs inspired by war and love. The goal is to boost the morale of both soldiers and citizens. He’s even performed in Kharkiv as it was being shelled. He’s also sung for the wounded and for medical staff.

On a similar note, check out the transformation of ballet dancer Oleksiy Potyomkin.
