Ukrainian reality is divided into two periods - before and after the war. In the nationwide
resistance, every citizen tries to be helpful. Ukrainians change professions and adapt to wartime
needs. Sculptors fabricate anti-tank obstacles in their art workshops. Just like the Terracotta Army,
silent figures of Ukrainian personalities, angels, Cossacks, and multiple copies of Jesus Christ are
frozen in anticipation of new creations. Craftsmen weld metal defense items for the Armed Forces
of Ukraine.
