A revolutionary died

A revolutionary died. Oksana Shachko has gone yesterday. She was one of the people who brought me a hope I needed very much. It's a big loss to me.

On the picture above, at a meeting with the writer Annie Le Brun on September 9, 2013, she just arrived in Paris after escaping Ukraine with Sasha Shevshenko. She has both arms broken by the SBU, Ukrainian secret services. A few months later began the Maidan Revolution.

In 2014, I've made a film about this feminist avant-garde: naked war.

These women literally taught me what courage is.

It is possible to make a donation to help her familly and friends to organize the ceremony.
