The concert was free of charge. The band’s frontman Sviatoslav Vakarchuk explained this gesture by the fact that Kramatorsk is one of the towns which the Ukrainian troops liberated from Russian mercenaries.
The show was attended by about 50 thousand spectators. Some of the spectators came from other towns.
At the most touching moment of the concert – execution of the song “Myt” (“Moment”), dedicated to the Ukrainian defenders, the whole stadium responded with crowd lights.
“Many thanks to “Okean Elzy” band and personally to Sviatoslav Vakarchuk for this unbelievable gift to our region. Your songs inspire and encourage many generations, they unite and bring hope! I believe that we will be able to organize an even more epic concert in the near future in the liberated Donetsk. And I feel how the heart sings! Life begins anew!” - stressed the Head of the Donetsk Military and Civil Administration Pavlo Zhebrivskyi.
The stadium chanted: “Glory to Ukraine – glory to Heroes!”
