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.

I believe that this is, right now, the most beautiful of your works. I find it perfect as it is but, if I can only allow a note, if there had also been the Russian flag on the other tank, the whole image would have been incredibly meaningful for me to show just the two levels of reality; the men with their weapons and their flags and their convictions on the one hand ... and on the other hand the innocent purity of the Sunflowers who ask nothing more to look at the sky.
