Foreign Legion Music Band: A song performed in support of Ukrainian families

The 10th of March 2022 marked the 191st anniversary of the creation of the French Foreign Legion. To commemorate this event, the Foreign Legion Music Band (MLE) performed a concert in Aubagne, the Legion’s Mother-house, a day earlier. During this performance, a Ukrainian folk song – Shabelina – was played in support of the Ukrainian families of the victims of the ongoing war.

As usually in the similar cases, to show the strictly non-political and strongly cohesive nature of this exceptional, multinational military force, the song was performed together by Music Band members of Ukrainian and Russian origins.
