Photo-fact: White-red-white flags at Banderstadt festival

Scores of Belarusians came to the famous Ukrainian music festival this year.

National white-red-white flags could be seen over many tents and near the stage, Radio Racyja reports.

“I am here for the fourth time. I decided to come again. One of the main reasons is that organisers promise to give the money from the festival to the Ukrainian army. I think Belarusians should support this idea and support Ukraine in this conflict. Ukraine is in a difficult situation, so I am here,” Aliaksei, who came to Lutsk from Minsk, says.

Belarusian band Zatochka and Belarusian singer-songwriter Ales Mikus played at the festival.

The festival is held in Lutsk for the eighth time. Income from the festival will be spent on supporting the Ukrainian army in eastern Ukraine.
