Ukrainian rap and folk band Kalush Orchestra, winners of the Eurovision Song Contest, performed their song “Stefania” on Monday on their journey back home to the Ukrainian-Polish border.

Poland-Ukraine border guards sang with the group, according to Reuters.

The Kalush Orchestra won the Eurovision Song Contest in Italy on Saturday (May 14th), taking advantage of a large wave of public support to claim an emotional victory that was hailed by the country’s president.

The results of the 2022 competition clearly showed public support for Ukrainian musicians, based in part on popular sympathy for Ukraine following Russia’s invasion of Russia in February.

Russia, which calls its action in Ukraine a “special military operation”, has been ruled out.
This is the third time that Ukraine has won the competition.

Romanian Television announced on Sunday at noon that the Romanian national jury awarded the most points (12) for the Republic of Moldova. However, in the official ranking, Romania has 12 votes for Ukraine.

“We were surprised to find that the result of the Romanian jury’s vote was not taken into account in the calculation of the final ranking, the organizers assigning another set of scores to the competitors in the final, on behalf of the jury of our country. We specify that the Romanian jury decided to give maximum score to the representatives of Moldova “, the TVR communiqué states.

The votes of these six countries were cast before the end of Eurovision 2022 but were later canceled. The countries whose jurors have been disqualified are: Azerbaijan, Georgia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania and San Marino. The sanctioning decision was taken by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).

The problems that led to the application of the sanction would have been registered “after the second general rehearsal of the second semifinal”. Thus, “certain irregular voting patterns” were identified in the case of juries from the six countries mentioned.
