Social art project 'War Songs' launched in Ukraine (VIDEO)

Social art project 'War Songs' launched in Ukraine (VIDEO)The social art project War Songs (in Ukrainian #ϳ³) is a large-scale public initiative, which aims to find and professionally record songs created by Ukrainian soldiers who have fought and are still fighting on the frontline in the Donbas conflict zone.

The initiative organisers also try to preserve current Ukrainian war songs as part of musical culture, patriotic education as well as the history of Ukraine.

The social mission of the project is to consolidate the Ukrainian nation through helping the wider society get acquainted with the theme of war and experiences of soldiers and their families.

Also, the project facilitates psychological and social adaptation for Ukrainian soldiers after they return home.

The project will put up nearly 15 songs in one album written by Ukrainian soldiers expressing what they experienced in the combat zone...

- Don't Be Sad -
When the war is over
And tired Ukrainian soldiers return from the frontline,
Someone's mother sheds a tear of sorrow
To cry over those who will never come back home
We will remember the Maidan set ablaze (pro-European protests in central Kyiv),
St. Michael's cathedral bell chiming in the black smoke,
Shields smeared with our brothers' blood,
And death races amid bullets
Don't be sad when I am not around,
Say your prayer and kiss our child,
Remember God protects those
Defending their Motherland
