ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – An active Ukrainian Catholic community in St. Petersburg is holding a charity concert on Sunday afternoon.

It’s happening at Epiphany of Our Lord Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on 90th Avenue North.

The charity concert is held by the Revived Soldiers Ukraine. The Ukrainian band Trioda is expected to perform from noon to 2:30 p.m.

Tickets cost $25 each. The money raised goes directly to Ukrainian wounded servicemen. The event is open to everyone.

“Our main goal was to bring wounded soldiers to the U.S. for medical treatment and medical help like prosthetics and rehabilitation,” said Iryna DiScipio, Revived Soldiers Ukraine president. “As of three days ago, we’ve been invaded by the entire country and now we have to help wherever we can.”

Currently four Ukrainian soldiers fighting are on prosthetics that DiScipio’s organization paid for.

“We have two injured Ukrainian soldiers that are here for the prosthetics and orthotics we try to do as quick as possible to put them back on their feet,” she said.

Andriy Zabihalo is one of the wounded soldiers who arrived in the U.S. on Monday in need of a prosthetic. He wants to return back to fight on the front lines. DiScipio translated our conversation.

“It’s a very big price Ukrainians can pay,” said Zabihalo translated through DiScipio. “We’re either going to live a independent country or live under Russian pressure the entire of our lives and we don’t want it. We were born in the USSR. I was born under the USSR and I remember we don’t want that we know how Europe can live.”
