50 Beautiful Pics Of Ukraine That Are Heartbreaking To See Right Now




Ukraine, a democracy of 44 million people, continues to experience a devastating attack. As the world uneasily watches the 8th day of the Russian invasion, people and nations are uniting like never before, sending support and condemning this unjustified war.

Sitting in the heart of Europe, Ukraine celebrated its 30 years of independence last year. While it may seem like a young state, it has a thousand-year history. Throughout this period, it has formed a powerful and resilient nation. Citizens there developed a strong sense of national identity, showing devotion and love to its culture, traditions, architecture, communities, and beyond.

Today, brave defenders are fighting for the future of this country, and we want to showcase all of Ukraine’s unique beauty. That’s why Bored Panda scoured the internet and collected some of the most gorgeous and breathtaking pictures that capture what an incredible land it really is.

We reached out to Alina Kisina, a Ukrainian-born photographer, artist, curator, and advocate for creativity working in the UK. In her work, she tries to find harmony in chaos through universal human qualities that reach beyond location, gender and social background. “I’m heartbroken and worried sick about everyone in Ukraine, not just my parents, childhood friends, and creative partners,” she told Bored Panda.

“Putting the complex history, political dynamic and conspiracy theories to one side for a minute, I’m simply in pain for all those human beings who, just like most of us, were peacefully going about their daily life, working, raising children, creating something, saving for a vacation and now suddenly have to hide in a bomb shelter, flee and fight for their country and its basic freedoms,” Alina said.

“I feel their fear and devastation, but also their courage and determination. And although I share the optimism, it’s still going to be messy and tragic, and the cost will be not only human life today, but resentment and hatred for generations to come.”
