Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Ukraine: Ex-Eurovision Pop Star Tina Karol Raises Awareness About War” – below is their description.

Former Eurovision participant and Ukrainian pop star Tina Karol is raising awareness about the crisis in her country. The 2006 participant travels from Japan to Switzerland spreading her message about the Russia-Ukraine war.

“We send the message like we need to save the world because if you save Ukraine now, you save the world for the future,” says Karol.

Karol has represented Ukraine in many different capacities, from Eurovision singer and the cover of Ukrainian Women in Vogue to coach on the hit TV show The Voice Ukraine and singer of the Ukraine armed forces. Prior to the current conflict, she was also recognized for her support of children’s health initiatives in Ukraine through the Tina Karol Foundation.

In the weeks since the conflict began, she has visited with people impacted by the conflict, held special appearances, met with key dignitaries and supported fundraising efforts around the globe.

Following on from visits to Poland, Israel, Lithuania and Switzerland, Karol will spend a week in Japan and then continue with a series of concerts in Europe and the United Kingdom aimed at raising awareness of the urgency of the crisis in Ukraine.

Eurovision 2022, which was held in Turin, Italy, was won by Ukraine’s folk-rap group Kalush Orchestra with their song Stefania.

The country joined the contest in 2003 and its three wins make it one of the most successful of the newer competitor countries – having triumphed in 2004 and 2016.

During their performance, which combined rap and Ukrainian folklore, the group were dressed in elaborate outfits, including long multi-colored fringed ensembles.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said in a Facebook post: “Our courage impresses the world our music conquers Europe. Next year Ukraine will host Eurovision! For the third time in its history. And I believe – not for the last time.”

In the UK, more than eight million people tuned in to watch Sam Ryder finish second in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest.
