“The sky over Ukraine is guarded by 109 children’s angels”
Barinova’s speech, which campaigned for support for Ukraine, was particularly emotional. Lina Barinova: “The sky above Ukraine is guarded by 109 children who lost their lives in this terrible war. They should have been protected by anti-aircraft defenses. 109 children who will not celebrate their birthdays this year . They gave the most valuable thing that can be lost – and that is their life. They lost the opportunity to go to school, to have a cat, to buy a dog, to fall in love, to celebrate their graduation,” said Barinova. she emphasizes:
“There are no foreign children, only children of our planet.” The war in Ukraine “is not a military operation but a genocide against Ukrainians,” said Barinova. “Parents shouldn’t have to bury their children.” Barinov ended her emotional speech with a minute’s silence. “Please raise your smartphones and honor the victims of the war,” she asked the audience, who pulled out their cell phones and created a sea of lights.
