The second issue of Soлomiya the new issue pays special attention to the stories of people from the now-occupied territories of Luhansk, Donetsk and Crimea, who have already been confronted with the war since 2014. The cover of the new issue was designed exclusively for Soлomiya by renowned artist Alevtina Kakhidze. It shows a woman surrounded by missiles and drones, raising her hand. “Our hands became more skilful during the war,” says Kakhidze, who has already created hundreds of drawings during the war and drew a tardigrade on the back cover of the magazine — the only creature to survive the Chernobyl nuclear accident.
