President of Ukraine


Ukrainians! We are going through the worst ordeal in our history. In our lives. We protect the most precious thing we have. We must hold on. We must fight. And we will win. I know that. I believe in that.

The Russian invaders cannot conquer us. They do not have such strength. They do not have such spirit. They are holding only on violence. Only on terror. Only on weapons, which they have a lot. But the invaders have no natural basis for normal life. So that people can feel happy and dream

Magura – the daughter of war and Ukrainian Wonder Woman – is an illustrator from Ukraine.

Here we may, quite shortly, put some personal details about an artist, for example social and professional background, what artist was doing before the war and how the war has changed her life.

In more details what was happening with the artist since the war was unleashed – personal reflections, activities, events in personal life – for example marriage.

Artist’s view of how the war shall end and how Ukraine shall overcome all the difficulties.

Actually speaking, it would be better to make a short interview with the artist and compose this sort of message as a result, the question is if it’s is possible and will conduct such interview.

On the other hand, it’s also probable that such sort of profile/message may be already available, I would guess that it could be got prepared for exhibitions of the artist, at least there is one mentioning about the exhibition at Facebook.
