Sunflower fields by RadoJavor Sunflower fields by RadoJavor
Real scene from last summer in East Ukraine. Ukraine army trying to stop the Russian offensive at all cost. One young tank commander deliberately crashed his vehicle to the Russian t-72 in order to save the retreating soldiers. The both tanks were destroyed, and this young man lost his life there, later he was awarded by order people's Hero of Ukraine.  
I was trying to capture the exact place and time in this picture.

The commander of the tank was 24 years old Artem Abramovich.

Wow... I have family in Ukraine, near Donetsk. 
Every day they live in fear,
They had heard of terrible events such as MH17
A peaceful civilian plane, packed with international citizens.
Which landed in the once peaceful sunflower fields.
The battlefields and the sunflower fields provide a beautiful, but terrible backdrop to this scene.
Beautiful... Absolutely stunning!

I have nothing against of your art, but the surprising number of idiots in the comments (not only under this work), screaming dirty words, simply hugely... Too bad that his work will attract not smart people, who insult others because of nationality.
I too once planning to draw Ukraine as part of my project (given the fact that I am russian). And I hope in the comments do not there will be people who are beginning to discuss politics, writing "dirt", are not able to control himself. In art, such phrases like-"Fuck Putin", "Fuck obama " e t.c.,  are not the place.
You can ban me, or hide my comment, it does not matter.

Ничего не имею против вашего арта (да и подобных на эту тему), но просто поражает количество идиотов в комментариях, под этой работой и другой. Жаль ваша работа притягивает своей идеей не очень умных людей (политика взбаламутила дно), которым лишь бы пооскорблять других на нац. почве и выместить свою злобу, покричать кричалки (не все конечно). Я тоже, в рамках своего проекта, планирую однажды рисовать Украину (с учетом того что я русская и, думаю, дальше этой фразы еще в моем кривеньком англ. варианте некоторые не прочтут). И очень не хотелось бы привлекать вот такие же вещи, как срачи о политике, всякую грязь и фразочки про Обама-Путина.

Арт это не место политоте, но некоторые не понимают.
Вы можете банить или прятать комментарий, не важно. Мне не важна чья то позиция о полит. ситуации, расхождение во мнениях с отписавшимися здесь и не важно что начнут писать в ответ) Просто мысли вслух под случайно увиденным артом. Всего.

There is no way of knowing who exactly is right, and there's no reason to spread hate. 
Let's just hope for peace.

Yeah, you`re right. Hate is only the source of violence and pure anger.

I hope that peace will come very soon, but if I look back in the past of humanity, I only see darkness because the most dramatic and dangerous failures are always repeating during the centuries, always. There is no way that humanity will stop those wars, fights and violence. As long as greed is the most sought thing...

Yes, hummanity itself makes it very hard to hope for peace, but...
Now that they've seen the devastating effects of war, all they have left is to mend their country right, and they can make war a lot more unlikely.
