British publishing house Penguin Books has presented the anthology "Ukraine 22: Ukrainian Writers Respond to War."

The selected works portray the realities of life in Ukraine during the first year of the full-scale invasion. The collection includes 22 essays written by nine Ukrainian authors, translated into English for the first time.

As described by the publisher, the authors in their works strive to comprehend the horrors of war, document everyday life, contemplate the role of culture in contemporary circumstances, condemn Russian imperialism, and reconsider their attitudes towards the world, especially Europe and its ideals.

"From tearing-downs of Russia's use of culture as justification of the war to moving descriptions of nights spent sheltering in corridors, poignant snatched moments with a husband on his single night away from the army, to descriptions of the eerie weather in the months leading up to the invasion, as if nature was trying to warn Ukraine, these essays reveal the texture, rawness and reality of life in Ukraine under war as never before," mentioned in the annotation.
