A Day at the Opera


On March 5th Donetsk State Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet named after A. Solovyanenko opened its doors for our team. We had an amazing opportunity to work with young dancers. They are incredibly talented people who are willing to continue their dance despite what is happening outside the doors of their dance-hall. (by Irina Novikova)

« Jaguar » – The Last Horse Club




Despite the situation in Donbass the youth keeps doing sports and saving animals. For example, at an equestrian club called « Jaguar » both children and adults are taught how to ride horses. Trainings are held every day.
Since the hostilities began, riding as a hobby has changed quite a lot. Majority of the athletes and coaches has left the area. A lot of horses that were in a good shape were relocated.But that didn’t stop the young athletes. They keep enjoying their favorite activity.
