Video shared on social media shows a young Ukrainian girl playing the recorder in Dnipro to raise money for the military conflict against invading Russian forces.
Dressed in a white dress and wrapped in a Ukrainian flag, six-year-old Solomiia Reut performed the Eurovision winning song “Stefania,” by the Ukrainian group Kalush Orchestra.
A passer-by dropped a donation into Solomiia's collection box.
The money she raised will go toward first aid equipment, bulletproof vests, a drone, a portable solar power plant, stretchers, blankets and medicine, the girl's mother, Ksenya Reut, told Reuters.
