The Co-Chairman of the Inter-Factional Association “Crimea Platform” attended the opening of the photo exhibition “Ukraine. One Year of Resilience” in New Delhi
On February 22, the Embassy of Ukraine in the Republic of India hosted the opening ceremony of the photo exhibition “Ukraine. One Year of Resilience” dedicated to the one-year anniversary of the full-scale Russian invasion. The initiative also involved the Mission of the President of Ukraine in the AR of Crimea/Crimea Platform Office and the Polish Institute in New Delhi, the capital of India.
The photo exhibition consists of two parts, as the Russian-Ukrainian war began in February 2014 and the full-scale aggression in February 2022. Some of the works cover the events of the occupation of Crimea, specifically its first days: photos of Russian soldiers without insignia posing proudly for journalists, illegal trials of activists, and the resistance that the residents of occupied Crimea have been putting up against the occupiers for 9 years.
The opening of the exhibition was also attended by Vadym Halaychuk, MP of Ukraine, co-chair of the Inter-Factional Association “Crimea Platform”. He thanked India for its support in highlighting Russia’s war crimes against Ukraine.
“We are grateful for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s phrase ‘This is not an era of war’. In view of India’s economic, political and military weight and capabilities, we are absolutely sure that Russia should have heeded this message,” Mr. Halaychuk said.
In total, the photo exhibition “Ukraine. One Year of Resilience” consists of 60 images and will be open for viewing on February 23 and 24, from 10:00 to 19:00 at the Embassy of Ukraine in the Republic of India.
