The purpose of the book coincides with the goals of the Russian War Crimes project by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation and PinchukArtCentre, namely, they seek to convey the truth about Russian war crimes in Ukraine and give eyewitnesses the opportunity to tell real stories. The project "Russian War Crimes" was first held in May 2022 during the World Economic Forum in Davos, after which similar exhibitions were held in numerous cities around the world. In this way, the curators of the project seek to initiate a general discussion among the world community in order to encourage it to take concrete actions to help Ukraine.
The event will be moderated by Ksenia Malykh, art historian, head of the PinchukArtCentre Research Platform, co-curator of the exhibition Russian War Crimes.
