Early morning on February 24 Russia began the full scale military invasion of Ukraine.
Russian troops launched missile strikes against peaceful Ukrainian cities from various directions, including the temporarily occupied Donbas and Crimea and the northeastern region.

They target both military objects and peaceful homes, orphanages and kindergartens. We are still fighting to protect our homes, loved ones and the whole of Europe.

We need the support of the professional photographic community. Please, consider the possibility to include special events in official festival’s programs, to show pictures from Ukrainian and foreign correspondents, who are bravely doing their job in Ukraine. Photography is a powerful tool and media to tell the truth about what is going on in the centre of Europe now. We, as Odesa Photo Days Festival, can’t do this right now on a full scale, so we are asking for your support. Thank you for all the letters and kind words. We feel your support, it’s time for action.

As individuals you also can help: spread the word, go to the streets and press your governments to do everything to stop Russian aggression, raise money for the Ukrainian Army and civilians.

What exactly you can do:

SHARE INFORMATION

HELP UKRAINIANS IN YOUR COUNTRY

A lot of Ukrainians can’t come back home and need support in other countries where they were on vacations or business trips with an amount of money not enough for a long stay. They need places to stay, food, clothes and just kind supportive words are important to us.

Keep calm and stand with Ukraine. We believe in our army, international support and hope for the better.
