Russian invasion came with its own brand of violence and atrocity. Deliberate destruction of civilian buildings and shelters along with mass executions have unveiled russia’s true nature. That of a ruthless animal incapable of civilized coexistence with the world on terms of “live and let live” philosophy.
This, unfortunately, has been their modus operandi with Ukraine for centuries. And it has been marked with much more horror than what we are witnessing right now. Genocidal tendencies of this neighbour are a complex and weighted approach to eliminate Ukraine as identity on all levels. Above all – cultural. As we have proven with numerous rebellions and continued fight for freedom, killing masses of people isn’t nearly enough in order to change the cultural code and mentality of the nation.
This is why russia always targeted culture in all its shapes and forms. Aiming to destroy and displace endemics with their own soulless mock ups.
We choose to support cultural renovation through funding local efforts to protect, preserve and restore various objects at destinations that have been liberated from russian occupation. Please join the cause and follow us on more detail for each of these initiatives.
