On the morning of February 24, Ukrainians woke up to the sound of air sirens. The Europeans awoke to the first military offensive in the continent in decades. The event many presumed was impossible and unthinkable in twenty-first-century Europe reminded us about the fragility and preciousness of peace. To support the people of Ukraine in this awful time, the emerging and established artists and three Estonian contemporary art galleries have come together with the initiative to do what they can to ease the suffering by supporting NGOs and charities helping Ukrainians.
