Photo exhibition brings back reality of Ukraine’s forgotten war

There is a war in the middle of Europe, forgotten by nearly all. A photo exhibition in London on May 6 will attempt to bring back the reality of it. Featuring photos taken by the soldiers themselves, it will raise funds for the Children of Ukrainian Heroes charity supporting children in Ukraine affected by the ongoing conflict. More information at the facebook event.

The organizers graciously agreed to let Euromaidan Press readers take a sneak peek at some of the photos from the exhibition, by Maksym Muzyka, a Ukrainian soldier, activist, and volunteer.
