In the spring of 2022, the troops of the Russian Federation destroyed our city. Tens of thousands of people died. Western countries, heavily addicted to fossil fuels at the time, did almost nothing to save us. The desire to continue doing business with the Russian Federation, which is what guided European elites, has undermined European democratic principles. However, our Mariupol values, our experience of openness, cultural reflection and struggle for equality have endured. Therefore, Mariupol Memorial Park is not the city’s burial ground. It is a park where we grow and develop, where our political and artistic ideas evolve.
