"Awful!" - that was the first reaction of the people who visited the presentation when they saw "The Ukrainian Potential"
The sculptor stressed that he was inspired to create this work by his recent travelling around Ukraine. "I was shocked of what I saw: ruins, poverty, a total decay. However on TV the politicians tell us that everything is fine and will be even better. But Ukraine is different. Now you will see the way it looks."
