Some of the RT comments:

Just click the link; One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen; ウクライナのタレントコンテストらしい; Sério, me emocionei; Artista que faz animação na areia é vencedora do Ukraine's Got Talent e emociona o público; Artista que faz animação na areia é vencedora do Ukraine's Got Talent e emociona o público: Sand Animation (Україна має талант); Meu Deus! ; HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?; World War in sand; This might be the coolest thing I've ever see ; Girl tells about the war with pictures of sand. Please look till the end! This is so beautiful AND emotional! . . . . . .I'd father watch this in Ukranian than "America's Got Talent" in English . . . . .All Ukranians are not equally gifted . .
