Against the background of the snow-white walls of the Patriarchal Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ in the city of Kyiv, located on the left bank of the Dnieper, an exhibition of drawings on the theme: “Prayer for VICTORY OF UKRAINE” was opened. The high ceilings made an incredible impression: painted angels seemed to have come down from heaven and are on duty, protecting us in these terrible times. A piece of our soul, which believes in the victory of Ukraine and Peace, is felt in every work. Each angel is full of bright colors of love, protection, warmth and care. All these emotions from viewing the exhibition filled me with energy and faith in the peaceful future of all children and sons of Ukraine. Daryna Danilchenko
