The organizers of the exhibition in Chernihiv made a statement, saying that the event was stopped and everyone was asked to go to the shelter
The organizers of an exhibition in Chernihiv urged Ukrainians not to take advantage of the information or manipulate it after the Russian terrorist attack. The event was stopped and participants were asked to go to shelters after the alarm went off.
Moreover, the venue was announced just a few hours before the event. This was stated on Facebook by the organizer of the event Maryna Berlinska.
According to her, the event was stopped immediately after the announcement of the air alert. The participants were asked to go to shelters several times, but some people ignored the security measures. Berlinska also noted that all those who went to the shelters were not hurt.
In addition, the event was previously officially agreed upon with the authorities. Thus, the venue was provided by the local authorities.
"The announcement of the event was public. But the specific location was sent only to registered and verified participants (!) hours before the event. All the data of the participants were provided to the relevant authorities," Berlinska said.
She also added that earlier events were held in Kyiv, Lviv, Dnipro and Kharkiv by agreement with local authorities. Therefore, the organizer of the exhibition urged not to engage in manipulations and not to write anything until there is no official information.
At the same time, the press service of Chernihiv City Council said that the exhibit was not coordinated with Chernihiv City Council and no permits were granted.
Russian terrorists hit the center of Chernihiv with Iskander-M ballistic missile. There are dead and wounded, including children.
Earlier it was reported that President Volodymyr Zelensky showed the aftermath of another war crime and emphasized that Russia must lose. The head of state emphasized that Ukraine would do more to consolidate the world against Russian terror.
