A blast at the Maalbeek metro station followed the explosions in airport killing 10 and injuring 15 more. The Maalbeek station is located near a number of important EU buildings such as Berlaymont building, which houses the EU Commission and the Council of the European Union. Minutes after the blast at Maalbeek, explosions were reported to have taken place at Schuman and Arts-loi metro stations.

The security alert has been raised to the top — fourth — level throughout the country following the blasts. Public transport and airport in Brussels has been shot down. The French-Belgian border has also been closed, control has been increased at nuclear sites.

These events comes just four days after the capture of Salah Abdeslami n a police riot for playing a key role in the Paris attacks in November. On Monday, Belgian’s Foreign Minister, Didier Reynders, announced on a security forum that Abdeslami thought to have plotted more future attacks on Belgian soil. The official revealed that Abdeslami is linked with a wide terror network in Brussel. The Belgian authorities have found more than 30 people involved in the terrorist attacks in Paris, where 130 people were killed.

However, the obtained information hasn’t allowed the authorities to prevent attacks which highlight the willingness and capability of militants to conduct terror attacks in the EU. We remember much of the planning for the November attacks in Paris was also conducted in Belgium. A terror threat has become especially high in Europe because high number of terrorist arrived in the EU with refugees.

2 countries. 2 wars. 2 exhibitions.

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.

All the truth about events in Syria and Ukraine, unique shots, artifacts, videos – all of this can be seen at the exhibition “Material evidences. Syria. Ukraine”.
