A series of events, organised by the NGO People in Need, will take place in Prague this week to mark the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. They will include a video mapping on the building of the Ministry of the Interior, as well as special film screenings and an exhibition documenting the war month-by-month.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening, visitors to Letná Plain will be able to see two light installations, prepared by People in Need together with the XLAB technological art agency.

The first will be a light projection on the facade of the Interior Ministry’s building, which will aim to convey the atmosphere of life in an occupied country, says People in Need’s media coordinator Milan Votypka from the NGO’s Relief and Development Department:

“We prepared this light installation because we want to present the everyday life of people in the midst of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and we want to give viewers a space to reflect on the event. At the same time, we would like to promote solidarity with Ukraine and ask people to support the country for as long as possible.
