A concert was planned to be held on the evening of June 16 at the Castle Garden Bazaar featuring Volodymyr Zelensky’s fellow actors. Weeks of organization have preceded the “Life Will Win” charity concert, with the Hungarian government as one of its partners. However, it has pulled its support less than a week before the event, Budapest’s District IX municipality told Telex.
The municipality took over the event at the last minute and found a new home for it in District IX’s Bakáts Square. The performance will feature members of the Kvartel 95 studio, who the Ukrainian president worked with on the set of “Servant of the People” during his acting days.
The charity concert is part of a European tour, with 12,000 people in attendance at a performance in Poland on Friday night. Concerts are also planned for Vienna, Bucharest, Berlin, Florence, Madrid, and Cascais.
District IX Mayor Krisztina Baranyi told the news site that the proceeds would be used for humanitarian and health care needs.
