Statues in Kiev Ukraine during the war

<<Previous  Next>>

During the war in Kiev, Ukraine, there was an admirable gesture. The beleaguered citizens of Kiev, in an effort to prevent the war from destroying the sculptures that were everywhere in their city, spontaneously gathered sandbags around the larger sculptures and dust sheets around the smaller ones. All the more than 350 large and small sculptures in the city were rounded up.

Ukrainians especially love their cities, they use color to dress up buildings, with sculpture to decorate the streets, the whole city is like a fairy tale world. The city of Kiev has a history of more than 1500 years. In the 9th century, it was the capital of Kievan Rus, which at that time had a population of more than 5 million, making it the largest country in Europe. As the capital of Kievan Rus, Kiev was the center of politics, economy, culture and religion at that time, and was honored as the mother of cities. The city of Kiev is home to the Hagia Sophia, a world heritage site. Hagia Sophia has stood for a thousand years, bearing witness to the region's troubled history, as well as its trauma. Kyiv people use color and sculpture to interpret the beautiful design and love of the city, and inherit the optimistic and unyielding spirit of the nation with music and tenacity. Today, their efforts to protect these statues in the midst of urban warfare conjure up images of ants laboriously fortifying their nests with straw sticks. Although very hard, although very hard, but ultimately in vain. Presidents can be unreliable, elected every four years and replaced. What about neighbors? You can't just replace it. Ukraine, a land of plenty, the breadbasket of Europe, and now refugees are fleeing Ukraine from all directions. It's been a long road for the Ukrainians. It's been tough.
