Ruslana - Ukraine is Alive

The Strategerist Podcast

The war in Ukraine was started when Putin invaded Ukraine – but it's the people in the country who suffer. Ukrainian artist and singer Ruslana shares her experiences in Ukraine and why she's fighting for her home.

Ukrainian musical artist Ruslana came to prominence in 2004 as an active voice supporting democracy during the Orange Revolution.

Today, she is once again using her voice and artistic soul as she fights in every way she can for her country that has been brutally attacked by Russia. An attack that has upended the lives of millions of Ukrainians — and left many wondering if their friends and family are alive.

Ruslana wrote the song used in the introduction for the people of Ukraine. It is titled “I’m Alive” and is available on YouTube.
