With Russia’s assault on Ukraine in the third month, it is important to highlight how Ukrainians defend democracy and their freedom not only in a physical war, but also in a social and political front. With this aim, the Victor Pinchuk Foundation will provide several platforms to draw attention to Ukraine at the occasion of the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF). Besides the traditional Ukrainian breakfast discussion, the foundation will present the Russia War Crimes House, and will again co-organize the Ukraine House Davos.
What for many years had been used to be the Russian House in Davos now will be the Russia War Crimes House. This symbolic project will present an exhibition about Russian war crimes in Ukraine. The exhibition aims to inform about the main facts, share faces, names and dates and provide at least some of the victims a platform from which to tell their real story. Open 22-26 May, the exhibition is organized by Victor Pinchuk Foundation and the PinchukArtCentre, in partnership with the Office of the President of Ukraine, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, online media Ukrainska Pravda (pravda.com.ua) and the Ukrainian Association of Professional Photographers. The exhibition aims to initiate debates and focus attention of decision and opinion makers to take action.
