Art Installation in Kiev Raises Awareness of Missing Persons in Ukraine Conflict

An art installation unveiled by the International Red Cross in Kiev at the end of August drew attention to those who have gone missing in the conflict in Ukraine over the past few years.Entitled “No news, but I don’t believe…”, the large piece that was dismantled again at the end of last week represented the families of 1500 people whose fate is unknown. The accompanying detail from the ICRC is:“It has been more than three years since the armed conflict in east Ukraine erupted, but for the families of over 1,500 people who are believed to be missing, each day is like a lifetime. Representing the constant uncertainty and anxiety of these families, an art installation entitled “No news, but I don’t believe…” was unveiled by the International Committee of the Red Cross to mark the International Day of the Disappeared on 30 August. The installation was on display at Sofiis’ka Square in Kyiv through 10 September 2017.” Credit: YouTube/International Red Cross via Storyful
