The Ukrainian Red Cross will be stand-by in Kyiv during the Eurovision Song Contest week. Moreover, free condoms will be handed out at the Palats Sportu, the venue where the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest will be held.
The action is part of the Red Cross campaign against the spread of HIV and AIDS. Volunteers of the Ukrainian Red Cross will be dressed in T-shirts with the mottos “Kiss Kiss – you can't get HIV by kissing” and “Touch Touch – you can't get HIV by touching“.
A first aid tent will be located near the Palats Sportu where people with questions or in need of care will be helped. The Red Cross will also be offering simple medical examinations in a laboratory on the spot.
