The photobook, published by the Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center, was handed over to the representatives of international missions, embassies and the media. To ensure the war stops being a faceless death machine, and society doesnot remain indifferent to the problems of the peaceful residents of Donbas. Indifferent to our common pain and tragedy", said Nikitina.
The exhibition materials tell about the most tragic days experienced by the civilians and volunteers of the Center, the unique role of the Humanitarian Center in the history of Ukraine.
