FRANKFURT — Some 10,000 folks attended a concert in solidarity with Ukraine in Berlin on Sunday, March 20, police mentioned, with the gang waving Ukrainian flags or holding banners with slogans opposing the Russian invasion.

Gathering close to the Brandenburg Gate, image of a divided Germany throughout the Cold War, many performers on the stage wore shades of blue and yellow, the colours of the flag. Musicians included Natalia Klitschko, a Ukrainian singer who’s married to the mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko.

Jamala, a Ukrainian singer who gained the Eurovision Song Contest with her track “1944” in 2016, was broadcast by way of videolink on an enormous display screen, telling attendees that “music is a peaceful force.”

“I think if all the musicians united it would be the strongest peace army in the world,” she mentioned to the gang, listening below clear blue skies. AP/JB
