However, some life has returned to Kyiv even though air raid sirens sound regularly. Bono rallied the crowd between songs during the performance. “This evening, 8th of May, shots will ring out in the Ukraine sky, but you’ll be free at last. They can take your lives, but they can never take your pride,” he said, quoting the U2 song Pride (In the Name of Love). On his trip, Bono also visited Bucha, a town near Kyiv where hundreds of bodies were found last month after Russian troops withdrew from the area. Ukraine and its allies have accused Russia of war crimes in the city. Moscow has vehemently rejected the allegations that Russian forces were responsible for killing civilians in Bucha and suggested images of corpses were “fakes”. Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine has killed thousands of people and forced more than 12 million people to flee their homes, including almost five million abroad.
