Ukraine Soldier Sings Eurovision Song Amid Shelling.

Video shows a soldier in an underground bunker singing Ukraine’s Eurovision 2022 entry song, “Stefania,” as sounds of bombing are heard.

MORE: Ukraine's winning Eurovision song rings out from the depths of Mariupol's Azovstal steelworks, where wounded troops remain defiant.

Video by the Azov regiment purports to show a soldier from the battalion singing “Stefania” in an underground bunker below the Azovstal steelworks as the sound of bombing can be heard.

Russian forces have been constantly bombarding the steelworks in the southern port of Mariupol, the last bastion of hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers in a city almost completely controlled by Russia after more than two months of a siege.

The Azov Regiment began as a battalion of mostly far-right volunteers after Russian-backed separatists seized parts of the eastern Donbas region in 2014. Kyiv later made it a unit of the National Guard and said it was reformed. Russia says destroying the group is a key war aim.

Reuters could not independently verify the video.

Kalush Orchestra's Eurovision 2022 entry 'Stefania,' sung in Ukrainian, fuses rap with traditional folk music and is a tribute to frontman Oleh Psiuk's mother.

Ukraine's Kalush Orchestra was crowned winners at the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest in Turin in the early hours of Sunday, snagging 439 points from the public votes.
