A Photography Exhibition in the Bellevue Room

GoEast is happy to be presenting a photography exhibition on the peaceful revolution in the Ukraine in the Bellevue Room during the week of the festival.

They were saying “no” to election fraud, shadow economy, the black market, corruption and organized crime.
Thousands took to the streets, which lay deep in the snow, camping on the Kreschtschatik mile despite the biting cold, blocking government buildings and the president’s palace- in the name of justice, democracy and closer ties with the EU. ...
This exhibition shows the work of five photographers who were present at the “Revolution in Orange”...
