Russian forces have allegedly written chilling messages referencing Ukraine's Eurovision win on bombs headed to Mariupol.

On Saturday evening, 14 May, Ukraine won the 2022 Eurovision song contest - rap group Kalush Orchestra took the top spot, with the UK's Sam Ryder coming in at a close second.

In their winners' speech, frontman Oleh Psiuk addressed Russia's ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

However, Russian troops have allegedly mocked the rapper's speech on the side of bombs set to target the city of Mariupol.

After Kalush Orchestra won the contest, Psiuk called out for the release of around 2,000 Ukrainian fighters trapped in Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol.

Around 1,000 civilians are also said to be stuck in the plant, with the city currently occupied by Russian forces.

Psiuk said: "I ask all of you, please help Ukraine, Mariupol. Help Azovstal, right now."

The images were reposted to Telegram by Petr Andryushchenko, the adviser to Mariupol's mayor.

He said: "They are just inhuman... they have lost anything remotely similar to humanism and humanity.

"This is the reaction of the Russian military to our victory at Eurovision 2022... In Russia, a century of repentance will follow the losses."

The bombs pictured are reportedly OFAB 250-270 bombs.

According to Collective Awareness to UXO, the type of bomb is 'a thick cased, high-explosive (HE,) fragmentation aircraft bomb designed to produce a large number of lethal fragments effective at long distances and blast overpressure for destructive effect at shorter distances'.

Mariupol's Azovstal steel plant has already been subject to bombing according to Ukraine.

On Sunday, 15 May, an aerial video posted to social media showed an attack on the plant. Ukraine accused Russia of using phosphorus bombs.


Despite 90 percent of Mariupol having been destroyed since Putin first sent troops across the border on 24 February, marking the first day of his 'special military operation' against the country, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy has vowed to try his best to hold next year's Eurovision in the city.
