Ukraine and Ukrainians

We, the Ivan Honchar Museum, created this online exhibition to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which protects our lives, heritage and future from destruction by russia.

When you turn the page below, you will see ancient photos of Ukrainians. This is more than just a photo. This is an evidence to the diversity and uniqueness of Ukrainian culture. Also, this is exactly what the enemy wants to destroy. But Ukrainians are an incredibly freedom-loving people, and they prove this every day in their brave fighting.

The exhibition presents photos of the late nineteenth – to first half of the twentieth century from the archives.
