As part of Russia’s ‘total war’, theatres are bombed and intellectuals are murdered. But we will fight for our heritage
Over the last few days, the well-known theatre actor Oksana Shvets and Artem Datsyshyn, soloist of the national opera-ballet, have been buried in Kyiv. These performers died when ballistic missiles hit Kyiv.
At the same time, a Russian bomber was “carefully” dropping a half-tonne bomb on the Mariupol drama theatre; inside, more than 1,000 citizens, including children and elderly people, were sheltering from the air raids.
