The students performed with a musical concert and circus acts. They also brought sweets, letters and postcards for the soldiers.

At the same time, as it turned out, the military men didn’t know in advance that somebody will come to see them. The news that Kharkiv students came to military men with a concert ran like lightning. And the hall of local culture centre was full quickly enough.
