Hasidim in embroidered shirts sang the national anthem of Ukraine at the border
Video of the pilgrims' performance was published by the head of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee Eduard Dolinsky on Facebook.
The video shows a group of men in bloomers and vyshyvankas playing musical instruments and singing the song “Glory and Freedom of Ukraine has not yet Perished”. After singing the hymn, the Hasidim chorused: “Glory to Ukraine! Thank you, Ukraine! Thank you, President Zelensky!”
“In the struggle for the right to get to Uman, Hasidim who are stuck on the border of Belarus and Ukraine sing the national anthem of Ukraine in national costumes,” Dolinsky said in the publication.
As RISU has previously reported, Ukraine has banned the entry of foreigners due to the coronavirus pandemic, as a result of which almost 2 thousand Hasidic pilgrims are stuck on the border with Belarus.
