Musician Andrii Khlyvnyuk joined the efforts to defend Ukraine

Before the full-scale Russian invasion, the Boombox group frontman and his band had a tour in the U.S. and Canada planned. Nowadays, he is defending the capital as part of the Kyiv Territorial Defense Forces, namely the patrol police.

Andrii is also trying to keep morale high through his social media. He recorded his version of the Ukrainian folk song “Oy u luzi chervona kalyna” (In the meadow, a red viburnum). South African musician The Kiffness has already remixed it, and the song itself has gone viral
