Photo exhibition about Russian aggression in Ukraine opens at NATO Headquarters

The exhibition of photos showing how Ukrainians defend their homeland amid the Russian aggression has been opened at the NATO Headquarters in Brussels.

The author of the "Face of Peace" exhibition is Ukrainian military photographer and volunteer Dmytro Muravsky, a Brussels-based Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"I'm neither a professional military man nor a professional photographer, but I was at the war for nine months and took photos of what I saw there," Muravsky said.

His photos depict the ordinary people, including volunteers, who went to defend Ukraine. There are also women among them, and even an ethnic Hungarian who has just left the battlefield.

The "Face of Peace" exhibition was opened on the day of the NATO Military Committee meeting at the level of the Chiefs of Defence of 29 Allies with the participation of some partners, including Ukraine.

The representatives of the Alliance, including Assistant Secretary General for Public Diplomacy Tacan Ildem, were amazed by the photos.

"These pictures have also theoretical and practical interest for the professional military of the Allies," said Vadym Prystaiko, the Head of Ukraine’s Mission to NATO.

As the Assistant Secretary General of the Alliance emphasized, the most important thing is that the NATO sees Ukrainians who are eager to move forward.

"Over the recent years, our cooperation with Ukraine has gained a new successful pace," the NATO Assistant Secretary General said.
