The Auction

Ukraine has struggled to assert itself as a distinct country with its own language culture and traditions—not Soviet not “little russia”--since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Determined to keep a firm grasp on Ukraine russia has never stopped meddling in Ukraine’s affairs.

Undaunted Ukraine has made steady societal and political strides away from russia. As it slips further from russia’s grasp russia’s tactics grow increasingly more vicious. In 2014 russia aided disgraced ex-president Viktor Yanukovych in a murderous attempt to put down the revolution that ousted him then illegally annexed Crimea and fomented war in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region.

Two years ago russia launched a deranged full-scale war on Ukraine with the aim of finally erasing Ukrainian identity once and for all. Ukrainians grimly aware that a future with russia is no future at all are fighting back with everything they have: not just with weapons but with all of their considerable heart creativity and ingenuity.

Many of the pieces in this auction started as russian instruments of death and destruction. Ukrainians turned them or caused them to be turned into means of fighting back.

Every piece embodies the unbreakable Ukrainian spirit resourcefulness and determination that will win Ukraine the war. The proceeds from every piece will help equip them to achieve their victory.
