A support action for captive defenders of Mariupol and an exhibition of posters dedicated to the heroic defense of the city was held in Lviv

In the space of Mariupol Reborn was opened an exhibition of posters created within the scale of the M86. The opening of the exhibition was preceded by an action in support of prisoners of war Mariupol, organized by the families of defenders, and the walk from the city center to the Mariupol Reborn platform.

Mariupol's defense lasted 86 days. The Ukrainian military and law enforcement officers fought in a full environment until they were ordered to make weapons to save their lives. Many of the city's defenders are still in captivity. The stories of the defenders of the city of Mary are stories of courage, sustainability, sacrifice and loyalty to its country of such power that the world has not heard since the Second World War.
