Vitaly Ruppelt, Rivne

“We have become the guardians of freedom” is a phrase from the poster of the legendary artist Nilo Khasevych who perpetuated the image of the UPA for centuries.


The work depicts the mythical Inner Volyn region, a metaphorical place in the heart of every Ukrainian. In these dark times, the residents of Volyn and Rivne regions protect the comfort of displaced families and guard the borders.
