Photographer's Note

Difficult not to think about this cruel war. The support of Ukrainians in Poland is immense. In shopping centers there are cartoons in which one can put necessary items for help - food, toys, children prams. The volunteers go in their own cars and offer the rides. For a long time, I haven't seen anything like this. But this is mainly from just the people or local governments, like in Warsaw. The Catholic church that fights for every zygote now is still. Also, the government tries to use the people's good heart to its one goal.

There are quite many photos on TE from Kyiv or Lviv, but there are places almost totally unknown.
In 2010 I was in Crimea. Then it was Ukrainian.

In February and March 2014, Russia invaded and subsequently annexed the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine. This event took place in the aftermath of the Revolution of Dignity and is part of the wider Russo-Ukrainian War. Following the annexation, Russia escalated military presence on the peninsula and leveraged nuclear threats to solidify the new status quo on the ground.
The names of the Crimean conflict may vary by constant degree. In Russia, it is known as the accession of Crimea to the Russian Federation (Russian: Присоединение Крыма к Российской Федерации, romanized: Prisoyedineniye Kryma k Rossiyskoy Federatsii), the return of Crimea (Russian: За возвращение Крыма, romanized: Za vosvrashchenie Kryma), and the reunification of Crimea.

In Ukraine, the names are known as the Temporary occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia (Ukrainian: Тимчасова окупація Автономної Республіки Крим і Севастополя Росією, romanized: Tymchasova okupatsiya Avtonomnoyi Respubliky Sevastopolya Rosiyeyu), the illegal occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, the fall of Crimea, and the invasion of Crimea.

In the photo, The Big Khan Mosque located on Palace Square to the east of the northern gate in Bakhcysarai. It is one of the largest mosques in Crimea and one of the first buildings of the Khan's palace. The mosque was built in 1532 by Sahib I Giray and bore his name in the 17th century.

The Khan's Palace was built in the 16th century and became home to a succession of Crimean Khans. The walled enclosure contains a mosque, a harem, a cemetery, living quarters and gardens. The palace interior has been decorated to appear lived in and reflects the traditional 16th-century Crimean Tatar style. It is one of the best known Muslim palaces found in Europe, alongside the Sultan palaces of Istanbul and the Alhambra in Spain. (Wikipedia)
