Some Eurovision 2024 participants supported Ukraine in an original way: who was not afraid to show whose side they were on to the whole world

Some Eurovision participants supported Ukraine on stage and during press conference

Even though Eurovision is usually called an apolitical contest, one can still see what certain participants think of wars on stage and behind the scenes. For example, in 2022, many contestants wore blue and yellow badges, and this year participants also supported Ukraine. Among them are the Australians and the Irish.

They did not condemn the Russia's war from stage (as such political statements could have led to disqualification), but the participants still showed whose side they were on. The artists integrated these messages into their concert looks, which OBOZ.UA will discuss below.

The duo Electric Fields, who came to Malmö all the way from Australia but did not make it to the final, expressed their support for the Ukrainians right on stage. The keyboardist had blue and yellow stickers in the form of clouds, which were stuck to the musician's chest and shoulders.

"We thank the representatives of Australia for their support for Ukraine," a member of the European Broadcasting Union, Suspilne Media, wrote.

As it became known at the press conference, the non-binary representative of Ireland, the eccentric Bambie Thug, also added a symbol of support for Ukraine - a key - to their look. The contestant's manicure featured small jewelry in the form of keys, one of which was given to Bambie Thug by alyona alyona and Jerry Heil.

We would like to remind you that a key is the main symbol of the reconstruction of Ukrainian cities affected by Russian attacks this year. According to Eurofans, it is likely that the Irish intentionally added keys to the manicure design and gave them to Ukrainian women in front of all journalists, thus condemning the Russian attack.
