"My house is flooding because of Russia": Ukrainian women staged an action in the water to draw attention to the disaster because of the hydroelectric power plant explosion. Video
In Denmark, Ukrainian artists Alisa Malysheva and Sofia Kvitka staged a performance to remind the world of the tragedy triggered by the occupiers' bombing of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant. The Ukrainians stepped into the lake with placards reading "My House Was Flooded - It's Russia's Fault".
Malysheva and Kvitka shared relevant photos and videos on their Instagram pages. They described what happened in posts in English and called for help from Ukrainians (please scroll to the end of the page to see the video).
In a commentaryfor Suspіlne Kultura, Kvitka told us that she is from Dnipro and Malysheva is from Stanytsia Luhanska. After the large-scale Russian invasion began, they were forced to leave Ukraine and are now studying in Denmark.
"Perhaps a proportion of people took the message of 'my home' literally, but for us Ukraine is our home, which is now flooding in because of the Russian terrorist attack," explained the author of the project.
She confessed that she was outraged by the quiet routine in a European country at a time when Ukraine was suffering from the crimes of the Russian occupiers.
"In the middle of the day (June 6. - Ed.) Alice sent me a message with the idea of going to a nearby body of water and taking a series of pictures with a poster to draw the attention of the European community to the largest man-made disaster," Kvitka said.
We should add that after the action of the artists, other users of social networks from Ukraine picked up the idea and also began to publish photos and videos with posters standing in the water.
