This year on the 24 of February the full-scale invasion of Russia to Ukraine had begun. An act of aggression which had not accrued in Europe since the defeat of fascism in Germany and the end of WW2. This was an enormous shock, and enormous was the solidarity with Ukraine and people fleeing their homes.
In the first weeks it was completely unclear, if Russia would be able to occupy all of Ukraine or might even drag the whole Europe into war. Despite all circumstances Ukraine was able to hold back the Russian army in such a way that Russia could only proclaim partial successes. In the so called „special operation”, they killed thousands of civilians, forced millions to flee and destroyed housing, industrial, transportation, educational, cultural and other vital infrastructures.
War news from the country, which has its border only 850 km away from Leipzig, became routine. Public outrage about civil victims caused by the Russian forces is fading. Instead of discussing headlines about deaths, misery and destruction happening in Ukraine, we discuss primely inflation and the rising prices of gas and food supplies. As much as we understand these concerns, we want to create awareness on the still daily happening miseries caused by the war.
On this day we want to provide a stage for people from Ukraine to tell their personal stories and about their life since the beginning of the war. How did their life change? Among others we invited an emergency doctor from the Donbas and people who fled from Ukraine.
The panel will be held in English language.
