Ukraine. Beginning of quarantine from COVID-19. It was March 2020. For our long-suffering homeland, this is a huge test of strength, resilience and clarity of mind. After many years of suffering, economic and political upheaval, our mother closed her eyes… For someone to relax, for someone to think about how to proceed. And although she is tired, gray, with wrinkles, she has not lost her national face, the customs of culture are nurtured by her people. The main thing is not to lose faith and stand firmly on your feet, feeling the gravity, resistance and energy of your homeland.
