Since Russia invaded its neighbor almost two months ago, one flag manufacturer in southwest Ohio has seen a significant surge in requests for Ukrainian flags. Orders for Ukrainian flags have soared, according to the owner of National Flag Company, marking the first time he’s seen such enthusiasm for another country’s flag.

People from all around the world are rallying to put an end to the conflict in Ukraine. To that goal, they came up with a variety of ways to express their desire to put an end to the worldwide battle and save innocent people.

Bukovets’ is a village of about 450 people located in Zakarpattia Oblast, about 125 km east of Uzhhorod. The main attraction of this village is the wooden Church of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (1808), a cultural heritage site of national importance.

There was no place for a bell tower near the church, and therefore it was placed a little higher, thanks to which the whole ensemble acquired its originality. Bukovets’ on Google Maps. Photos by: Maxim Ritus.
