Two months have passed since the war in Ukraine began. While many Ukrainians are fighting on the frontlines for the territorial sovereignty of their country in any and every way they can, there are many more who cannot and who are not there, including here in Singapore.
The Ukrainian community in Singapore has not given up hope and they have not given up supporting their brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, cousins, friends and compatriots. They have been and are doing everything possible from afar.
In an age of misinformation, Ukrainians in Singapore are trying to spread the word of truth about the war in their homeland. This week, they are inviting everyone to visit the photo exhibition “War in Ukraine”.
Visitors to UltraSuperNew Gallery from April 13-17 will be able to see a multitude of photos taken in Ukrainian cities affected by the war. These photos, some of which you can see below, have been taken by street and documentary photographers on the ground including Adriana Dovha, Tetiana Lobas, Serhii Korovayny, Viacheslav Onishchenko and Yana Sidash.
Ukrainian volunteers will also be on hand to answer any and all of your questions.
