The terrorist country of Russia is not only trying to destroy Ukrainian identity, but is also brazenly stealing Ukrainian culture. In particular, the Russians decided to "appropriate" the Ukrainian artist Solomon Yakovlevych Kyshynivskyi.

So-called "art critics" in Russia call the artist "Russian and Soviet". This was reported on Telegram by the Center for Countering Disinformation.

There is a lot of evidence that Kyshynivskyi belongs to the Ukrainian artistic context of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. However, this does not prevent Russians from "appropriating" him.

They try to justify their fantasies by saying that the artist was born in the Russian Empire. But in fact, it happened in Ukrainian Odesa, which at that time was part of the Kherson province.

The aggressor country also spreads the narrative that Kyshynivskyi was a "Russian artist" because he belonged to the society of "South Russian artists." The Center for Countering Disinformation explained that in fact, Kyshynivskyi played a major role in this society. However, it was the largest association of professional artists in Ukraine, and it was called "South Russian" because it was founded in the south of the Russian Empire.

Moreover, Kyshynivskyi was the founder of the Odesa branch of the all-Ukrainian association of artists, the Association of Revolutionary Art of Ukraine.

As a reminder, the aggressor country Russia is trying to appropriate not only Ukrainian territories but also our artists. In particular, the Ukrainian artist Yevhen Yosypovych Bukovetskyi (1866-1948), who was born and died in Odesa, is called exclusively "Russian" by art critics in Russia.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA told about the artist, photographer, film director, sculptor and writer Andy Warhol, who was the son of poor immigrants from the Lemkivshchyna region and managed to become the most expensive artist of the twentieth century.
