Vases planted by Ukrainian border guard Dmytro Melnychenko and friends, June 22-23, 2014

“In response to the hostilities going on in Eastern Ukraine, two peace vases were planted at the war zone in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions of Ukraine. Both peace vases were planted by Ukrainian border guards participating in the military operations in immediate proximity to the frontline. Since February 2014, this region has been heavily targeted by military actions between Ukrainian army and Russian military servicemen and Russia-supported combatants.   Many people have been killed or wounded.   And a whole range of Ukrainian cities and towns have been destroyed artillery shelling.  May peace prevail.”
