On February 17, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. an exhibition under the name “Ukrainian East” will start at the National Museum of History of Ukraine in the Second World War (Lavrska Street, 27). The public will meet the heroes of the war and members of their families.
This is the second project of the museum which is dedicated to the war in the East of Ukraine. The first one (“Ukraine. Realias of modern war”) consisted of ten exhibitions. Over the period of two and a half years the museum’s employees managed to gather over 4 thousand authentic museum items. Part of them will be displayed for the first time.
The exhibition includes stories about the participation of different military formations in the combat actions in the East of Ukraine during 2014–2017. The central exhibit – “Way of the Cross” – personifies the blood price which the Ukrainian people are paying for the right to live freely on their land.
The project’s partners are a team of journalists of “1 1” TV channel and volunteers of humanitarian mission “Black Tulip”.
Admission is free of charge.
