Zelensky addressed the participants of Glastonbury Music Festival in Great Britain

President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the participants of the Glastonbury Music Festival in Great Britain with a request to spread the truth about the war in Ukraine.

It was reported on Glastonbury's Twitter page.

"Congratulations, Glastonbury!

The festival starts again after a two-year break. The pandemic has paused the lives of millions of people around the world but has not broken humanity. We in Ukraine would also like to live as we used to, to enjoy the freedom and this wonderful summer.

But we can't because the worst of all that can happen has happened. russia has stolen our peace. But we will not let russia's war break us. And we want to stop the war before it ruins people's lives in other countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America. All people are now under threat!

That is why I turn to you for support. Glastonbury is the greatest concentration of freedom these days, and I ask you to share that feeling with everyone whose freedom is now under attack. Spread the truth about russia's war! Help Ukrainians who are forced to flee their homes because of the war.

Time is priceless, and every day is measured by human lives! Prove that freedom always wins! "Zelensky said.

Zelensky also called on festival visitors to donate aid through the United24 platform and not tire of putting pressure on politicians in their countries to achieve peace in Ukraine.

The President voiced his address in English.


Glastonbury is a music festival held annually in late June in Somerset, UK. Visitors usually come with tents and spend all five days on the festival's territory. Glastonbury's traditions date back to the 1960s, the birth of the hippie movement, and modern pop and rock music.

This year, the organizers expect about 220 thousand visitors. The main stars of the scene this year will be American singer Billy Eilish and the frontman of the legendary band The Beatles, Paul McCartney.
