Singer Ruslana broke her leg and was unable to perform at the concert in Amsterdam

Singer Ruslana broke her leg and was unable to personally perform at the #StrivingTogether charity concert in Amsterdam.

– Today I was supposed to be in Amsterdam for the event that brings Ukraine closer to Europe and to perform with my colleagues, the winners of Eurovision. But this bloody war takes power even if you consider yourself very strong. Due to overwork in my activities and volunteering, I received a serious leg injury – I have a fracture. Therefore, today I am in Ukraine. Unfortunately, I was not able to come to Amsterdam and my performance will be in the format of an online message,” the singer wrote on Facebook.

The video message of the singer was shown on the screens. She called on the European Broadcasting Union to change its mind and host Eurovision 2023 in Ukraine.

– Ukraine won Eurovision for the first time in 2004 with Wild Dances. We are Ukrainians. We are fighting and will continue to fight. Mariupol, Azovstal demonstrated the real heroism of Ukrainians. That is why Eurovision should be held in Ukraine next year. This means that you believe in Ukraine, believe that we will win. Let's win together. Give us a chance!, Ruslana said.

Eurovision organizers said that holding the contest in Ukraine is dangerous and started negotiations with Great Britain, whose representative took the second place. Minister of Culture of Ukraine Oleksandr Tkachenko appealed to the EBU with a request to reconsider this decision.
