The exhibition consists of two parts: photo evidence of Russia's war against Ukraine, and a series of icons "Mariupol Deesis", which are written on the lids, bottoms and other fragments of wooden boxes in which various types of ammunition were stored.

The photo exhibition is dedicated to Ukraine's resistance to Russian aggression. This was announced by Fr Oleg Zimak on his Facebook page on May 17.

The exhibition was opened by the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, Ambassador Vsevolod Chentsov, Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze. A number of Vice-Presidents of the European Parliament, numerous MEPs, employees of European institutions, journalists, and guests were present.

"After the opening ceremony, in an informal conversation, I expressed gratitude for supporting Ukraine at this fateful time for both Ukrainians and all Europeans, to EP Vice-President Pedro Silva Pereira, who, like some other MEPs, expressed unequivocal support for Ukraine and our courageous people," wrote Fr Oleg Zimak.

Fr Oleg has been giving the first impetus to numerous communities in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg in Brussels since 2004.
