The Ukrainian Eurovision commentator was overjoyed at the victory in the song contest

Ukraine’s Eurovision commentator Timur Miroshnychenko was full of joy and emotion as he cheered his country’s victory in the Eurovision Song Contest from inside a bomb shelter early on May 15. Footage from a live broadcast by national broadcaster Suspilne shows Miroshnychenko’s reaction as Ukraine’s victory is assured on the back of huge public support, which saw the entrance of him reviewing the UK’s Sam Ryder. Ukraine’s winning act, Kalush Orchestra, scored 631 points in total, with the UK second with 466. On Instagram, Miroshnychenko thanked the band for their “persistence and determination, the right stubbornness and courage. Today you embodied all Ukrainians. Priceless!” He added that he was writing while still in the bunker at 5am due to “explosions somewhere nearby.” Credit: Suspilne via Storyful
