Residents of Canada were told about Crimea

September 1, 2022

On August 24, the Independence Day of Ukraine, an art installation Doors was organized in Toronto. It was created to show the stories of millions of Ukrainian men, women and children forced to break the doors of their homes to escape the war and terror of Russian troops.

There were 25 doors in total, symbolizing 24 regions of Ukraine and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. They were hung with a sign with the history of this region.

The team of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center joined the creation of doors from the Crimea. We provided information about the situation in the occupied Crimea, violations of human rights, the situation of the Crimean Tatar people, violations of the rights of women and children, as well as the state of the Crimean ecosystem.

We are sincerely glad that we were able to help in the creation of this installation and tell the people of Canada about the crimes of the Russian Federation.

Exhibition organizers: Ruslan Kurtveliev, contemporary Ukrainian artist and Rustem Irsai, President of the Canadian Association of Crimean Tatars.
