On September 12, at the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Israel took place a meeting with members of the Veteran Diplomacy project «Ambassador» and screening of the documentary “Invisible Battalion”.
Participants of the Veteran Ambassadors project Kateryna Prymak, Stanislav Kerod, Mykhailo Polahiv and Viktor Kryvonosov shared their personal experience, gained during the fighting in eastern Ukraine, and spoke about the reasons that prompted them to join the ranks of the defenders of the country to defend territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine in the undeclared war in eastern Ukraine. They also spoke about the work being undertaken by veterans after returning to a peaceful life, in particular, on informing the wider public around the world about the Russian aggression and the need to counteract the aggressor through joint efforts.
As one of the ways to convey the truth about the undeclared war in eastern Ukraine, Veteran Diplomacy Club “Ambassador” uses documentaries in which eyewitnesses share their personal experience.
In particular, the movie "Invisible Battalion", which was presented to the guests of the Ukrainian Cultural Center, depicts the story of six Ukrainian women who together with men defend territorial integrity of Ukraine. Each story is not only a woman's view on war, but a proof that, as one of the heroines of the film, Darya Zubenko, says, “war is not a woman's or a man's business. War is not human business at all".
Ambassador of Ukraine Hennadii Nadolenko, greeting participants of the Veteran project “Ambassador” in Israel and the guests of the evening, emphasized the importance of people’s diplomacy in destroying the myths of Russian propaganda and thanked the public organization "Israeli Friends of Ukraine" for providing support to the Veteran project “Ambassador” in the Holy Land and volunteering to support Ukraine.
