Kalush Orchestra filmed a video for the Eurohit "Stefania" in dilapidated Bucha and Irpen

The Kalush Orchestra presented a video for the song “Stefania”, with which they won contest “Eurovision-2022”. The team filmed the video for the track in the dilapidated cities of the Kyiv region: Bucha, Irpen, Gostomel and Borodianka. The plot of the video reflects today's reality in Ukraine – women serving in the Armed Forces of Ukraine carry children out of destroyed buildings in their arms. The artists published a video for the song on the group's YouTube channel.

– The war completely changed the meaning of this song – and this was expressed in the video. We shot this clip in Bucha, Irpin, Gostomel, and Borodyanka – the footage is not for the faint of heart, it hits deeply and painfully, – the group announced the premiere immediately after winning the competition.

The song “Stefania” is dedicated to the mother of the band's frontman Oleg Psyuk. In the performance for Eurovision, the team used “shadows” with the Ukrainian national ornament, and the eyes of a woman with tears were broadcast in the background. At the end of his speech, the band's leader Oleg Psyuk called in English to help Ukraine, save Mariupol and Azovstal.

Kalush Orchestra won the song contest on the night of May 14-15. The team received the most points – 631 (192 from the jury and 439 from the audience).
