The exhibition, which is a part of photo project “For Their Sake” includes photos of six families that lost their sons, fathers, husbands in the east of Ukraine. One of the exhibits is dedicated to the perished reconnaissance man Oleh Kostrichenko.
Oleh Kostrichenko served in the 93rd separate infantry mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. He was one of the first who went on war – in spring of 2014. He was killed in a battle, rescuing his combat sworn brothers. His parents, wife and daughter did not wait for him at home.
Oleh’s parents Nataliia and Volodymyr Kostrichenko, who went from Novomoskovsk, was attended at unveiling of the exhibition.
“On perished anniversary, a memorial plaque was unveiled at the school no. 6 in Novomoskovsk. There are arranged concerts, we are constantly invited. We attend these events. Of course, I always weep, but this communication is very necessary. It is good that they don’t forget us. I try to assuage myself the thinking that he had such destiny – to perish a young, to perish for the sake of Ukraine,” Oleh’s mother said.
This exhibition will last for a month in Dnipro city. The entrance is free of charge.
