During several years we have been watching the devastating consequences of the civil war in Syria. A terrible conflict which began in 2011 turned the country into ruins with many victims, destroyed the state structure and divided society into warring factions. At the end of the previous year similar events took place in Ukraine. Bloody confrontations at the “Maidan Nezalezhnosti” in Kiev ended with mutinies of nationalists – Bandera’s followers, who overthrew the legitimate power of the incumbent president. Civil war in Ukraine is not ended yet, and daily events reflect with pain in our hearts.
What really happened in Kiev and Crimea, and where Ukraine is heading? Who benefits from war in Syria and what has happened to this country? You can find answers to these questions at the material evidences exhibition prepared by indifferent journalists who risked their own lives, plunged into the midst of armed conflict: Damascus and its destroyed suburbs; Kiev, Kharkov, Simferopol, Sevastopol. They worked in the “hottest spots” keeping for the History a unique evidence of the dramatic events that took place there.
