Banksy shares picture of his work in Borodyanka

British street artist Banksy shared a picture of his new artwork in Borodyanka, Kyiv region, Ukraine.

The artist posted the picture on his Instagram.

The work was painted on the wall of a house in Borodyanka, which was badly damaged during the Russian attack.

The artist drew a gymnast doing a handstand as if leaning on the ruins. "Borodyanka, Ukraine," reads the description.

As reported, at the end of March, Banksy's unique anti-war painting CND Soldiers, unsigned, was sold for GBP 81,000 (over USD 106,000) at a charity auction in London to support Ohmatdyt Children's Hospital in Kyiv.

The funds were transferred to the Ohmatdyt Children's Hospital where children injured as a result of Russian aggression are treated.

Banksy is a pseudonymous English Graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter, whose identity has not been established.
