Living the War: A book that chronicles life in Ukraine during the Russian military aggression.

Living the War is a new book dedicated to documenting life during ongoing Russia’s war against Ukraine. The book’s first edition, titled Kyiv during the Russian War against Ukraine, features a chronological reconstruction of the events, eyewitness accounts, and photographic evidence, providing readers with a unique perspective on personal experience and everyday life.

Through the lens of Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital, the book captures Russia’s attempt to capture the city and the experiences of its residents during this challenging time. The edition features twelve personal testimonies from individuals of different ages, professions, and social statuses, including an animal rights activist, an artist, an 80-year-old historian, and a businessman who lost goods worth over 16 million euros due to Russian shelling.

Ai Weiwei, Olafur Eliasson & Stefan Sagmeister have raved about the book and acknowledged it’s relevance & timelessness.

The first edition of Living the War is divided into five chapters, with each chapter focusing on a specific period, starting from the threat of war in January and ending with the destruction of Ukrainian civilian infrastructure by missiles and drones in October. Additionally, the book includes images of the war by eight photographers and artists who documented the events in Kyiv and its suburbs from February to September: Mykhaylo Palinchak, Vova Vorotniov, Vasylyna Vrublevska, Oleksandr Burlaka, Roman Pashkovsky, Maks Levin, Sasha Maslov and Sasha Kurmaz.

The book presents the facts, images, and testimonies in an unbiased manner, allowing readers to form their own understanding of the historical events that took place in Kyiv after February 24th.

By offering multiple perspectives on the war, Living the War provides a comprehensive view of the war unfolding in Ukraine.
