Hi, posting here for the behalf of sketchers working in Kyiv during the current events developing there. In a nutshell, here is what's happened: three months peaceful protests against unpopular former president's move towards Russia and against the EU have ended in bloodshed and around 70 people dead, the president who has ordered shooting ousted and a new interim government formed. Here are sketches done by Victoria Chernyakhivska of the protesters prior to the shootings. The flag colours on the picture below are blue and yellow.

About a week ago Putin, Russian president, brought in troops into Ukrainian territory - Crimean peninsula under the pretence of Russian speaking people being under threat there. Provocations and information warfare attempts to justify the invasion, while Western countries start to impose sanctions onto individuals involved in the assault.
I will be posting here more sketches as they come in from back home.
