Documenting Ukraine Grants
Bucha became a place of no return in the Russo-Ukrainian war. The brutality with which the Russian soldiers entered the Kyiv region became a shock for the world, and for Ukrainians––a bitter pain that has not gone away for months and is unlikely to ever go away.
Currently, the archival department has begun collecting and systematizing photographic, video, and textual documentary evidence of the events of the enemy occupation and its consequences.
Plans include creating a "Russian military occupation of the Bucha community" collection, compiling a diary of the occupation and restoration of Bucha, photos and video stories, producing audio and video recordings of the stories of victims and their family members, employees of local government bodies, entrepreneurs, volunteers, military personnel and all those who have unique information about the events of the occupation and their further consequences for the Bucha region.
