Six-year-old Milana Abdurashytova became a heroine of new mural in Mariupol. She became an orphan due to the Donbas Conflict. Kyiv artist Sasha Korban is the author of a picture as Artslooker wrote.

This graffiti appeared at a 15-floors building at Mury Avenue. Mother of Milana Abdurashytova died in 2015. During the shelling of Mariupol neighborhood Eastern, a woman covered a daughter with her body. A girl was heavily injured. She sustained a few surgeries. Despite the efforts of the doctors, Milana lost her leg. Now she moves with the help of the prosthesis.

Milana impressed artist Sasha Korban with her strength and love for life.

“Through her image, I want to present the tenderness, kindness and defencelessness of a child whose love for life can inspire everyone. I want to remind by this picture that the combat actions in Donbas continue. They are close to us, not far from us. We should not forget about this even not for a minute. The civilians of this region need your support and attention. It is very important for me that this project is implemented in Donbas,” Korban said.

Earlier two new murals appeared on high-rise apartment houses in Dnipro. One of them pictures Albert Einstein, Nobel Prize-winning physicist, riding a bicycle. Another one – a girl on a swing holding by a woman’s hand.

Such murals appear on the walls of the Ukrainian buildings in different cities quite often. For instance, last month a picture of an owl with a book in Kyiv and a huge graffiti with the Cossacks in Kharkiv were created.
