Video released on May 9, 2022, in what is believed to be the inside of the Azovstal steel plant shows a moment of respite from fighting, as soldiers join a female colleague in singing a popular Ukrainian song.
The song, "Spi sobi sama" (Sleep alone), is one of the biggest hits of a Ukrainian rock band named Skryabin.
The soldiers seen in the video are wearing Ukrainian military uniforms including an Azov Regiment insignia.
The Azov Regiment is known to be situated at the Azovstal steel works.
