Bono, alongside guitarist the Edge, sang the Ben E. King song “Stand by Me” in the Khreschatyk metro station. He was joined by a singer wearing Ukrainian military fatigues.
He also went to Bucha, a town near Kyiv where hundreds were found dead after the withdrawal of Russian troops last month. This town is suspected to be a site of war crimes.
