The photographs on this page are all from the country of Ukraine.
“What does Ukraine look like? It’s green and gently rolling, and dotted with medieval fortresses, romantically neglected baroque palaces and monasteries, and quiet, pretty towns and little cities, much like those of Austria or the Czech Republic. Kyiv itself is a grand Belle Époque metropolis with up-and-down cobbled streets and chestnut trees. There are funny little back alleys and courtyards full of coffee shops and art galleries, leafy parks with views over the sprawling river Dnipro, and an array of glorious churches.” — Anna Reid, March 15, 2022
Somewhere, my love, there will be songs to sing,
Although the snow now covers the hope of spring.
Somewhere a hill blossoms in green and gold,
And there are dreams, all that your heart can hold.
— Maurice Jarre, Paul Francis Webster
Evil is powerless if good is unafraid. — Ronald Reagan
In Ukraine, you can’t go down a city block or a country mile without
running into a bona fide hero. Their courage is both inspiring and humbling.
