They are pilots of the 40th tactical aviation brigade. They held Kyiv in the first days of the full-scale invasion, now they are defending our country, our independence. They closed the sky over us and our children with their iron wings. They are a legend to whom we owe our lives.
We are residents of the capital, citizens who are grateful to them for their service and thousands of saved lives, for our peace, our lives. We decided to dedicate to our heroes a mural with the image of the "Ghost of Kyiv" to forever immortalize their memory on the walls of the central district of the capital.
The idea of the mural came from the team of the charitable foundation "For My Ukraine".
A talented and already well-known muralist Andriy Kovtun, who made art based on photos, was invited to implement the idea.
For his work, the artist chose a photo of one of the pilots of the 40th Tactical Aviation Brigade, who probably serves now in the Air Force. In the picture, the pilot is the "Ghost of Kyiv" in the cockpit of the famous MiG-29 aircraft, which is in service with our Air Force.
On August 19, preparatory work on the composition began, and on August 27, on the Day of Aviation of Ukraine, the official opening of the mural is scheduled.
We invite you to the grand opening of the mural on August 27, 2022.
You will have the opportunity to
