Chornobyl survivor on musical mission

The Japan Times Online recently published a touching story about Ukrainian opera singer Oksana Stepanyuk, 28.

Since being invited by a church group in 2003, Stepanyuk has stayed in Japan, performing at numerous charity concerts to support the disaster survivors while making a living as a professional musician.
