Timothy in the Soviet-era bunker - Ukraine
The Ukraine 2022
The story behind the photo:
In 2018 I discovered this Soviet-era anti-atomic bunker in Kyiv. Returning in 2022 to document the ongoing war, I decided to go back there to see if it was being used to protect the local population from Russian attacks. I found some residents from around the bunker, such as Timothy, who take refuge in here during missile and drone launches by the Russians on Kyiv.
This bunker was built by the Soviet Union during the Cold War period and served to protect the population from a possible atomic attack by the United States, which never happened. They were supposed to be used to protect the population from an attack by the United States, but for their first time they are being used to protect the population from the attacks by Russia.
