BBC News published this video item, entitled “Ukraine’s youth orchestra exiled in Slovenia – BBC News” – below is their description.

Gleb is among a 140-strong group of talented young musicians and their families who have been evacuated out of Ukraine into Slovenia.

A recorder was one of the only belongings that the 10-year-old took with him when he fled his home amid the conflict.

Some of his fellow musicians have formed a new youth orchestra in exile, under the direction of Slovenia’s top female conductor.

Together, they hope to become musical ambassadors for Ukraine.

The BBC’s Caroline Hawley reports.
