Musicians from a military orchestra perform in the main terminal of the Boryspil International Airport in Kiev, Ukraine, 20 January 2020.

Military orchestras on 20 January will perform at the airports of nine Ukrainian cities during the all-Ukrainian action to honor the ‘cyborgs’, the collective name of Ukrainian soldiers who defended Donetsk International Airport for 242 days.

The airport was a strategic object that has been the subject of heavy fighting between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian militants in the Eastern Ukrainian conflict zone in 2014-2015.
