KYIV, Ukraine (Hypebot) — U2 bandmates Bono and The Edge performed a 40-minute concert in a metro station now used as a bomb shelter in Kyiv, Ukraine. The pair, who were there by special invitation from the country’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy praised all Ukrainians fighting for their freedom from Russia.

After the concert, the pair toured several fiercely contested areas and the likely sites of Russian atrocities.

Here are videos and photos posted on social media where not everyone thought the trip and concert were appropriate.
