FRANKFURT — Some 10,000 people attended a concert in solidarity with Ukraine in Berlin on Sunday, March 20, police said, with the crowd waving Ukrainian flags or holding banners with slogans opposing the Russian invasion.

Gathering near the Brandenburg Gate, symbol of a divided Germany during the Cold War, many performers on the stage wore shades of blue and yellow, the colors of the flag. Musicians included Natalia Klitschko, a Ukrainian singer who is married to the mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko.


Jamala, a Ukrainian singer who won the Eurovision Song Contest with her song “1944” in 2016, was broadcast via videolink on a big screen, telling attendees that “music is a peaceful force.”


“I think if all the musicians united it would be the strongest peace army in the world,” she said to the crowd, listening under clear blue skies. AP/JB
