The exposition, dedicated to the heroic events of the 242-day defence of Donetsk airport, has a special place in the museum of the Zhytomyr Military Institute named after S.P. Koroliov, because many Zhytomyr residents took part in the defence of Donetsk airport.
To commemorate the feat of the "cyborgs", Senior Lieutenant Natalia Pavliuk has presented to the museum exposition a hand-embroidered painting "Tower-Flower", which symbolizes the indomitable spirit of Ukrainian servicemen.
– The scheme of this embroidery was made by Zaporizhzhya craftswomen, and I decided to embroider it, because, in my opinion, it is not just a flower. The work went through me because I understand how it was hard for the guys who defended the airport. Embroidery is in memory of each of them, - Ms. Natalia said.
Natalia Pavliuk presented her work to Yurii Tkachuk, who heads the museum of the institute. According to him, this work will take a worthy place in the museum, where there are now many exhibits made by future reconnaissance officers, servicemen and volunteers in honor of those who defended and have been defending Ukraine.
Officially, the defenders of the Donetsk airport are honored on January 20, at the day of completion of the defence of the airport.
