Yaryna Zhurba is the author of the idea and co-founder of Ukrainian Puzzles. At the beginning of the full-scale war, the girl created her first collection of puzzles, dedicated to the sights that were destroyed by the russians: the Chernihiv Youth Library, the largest An-225 “Mriya” transport plane, the Mariupol Drama Theater and others. Yaryna will transfer the net profit from the project to the reconstruction of Ukraine, and one of the buyers of the puzzles was the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi! Today, our winner is working on new collections, which will be called “Ukrainian Art”, “Open Ukraine” and “Glory to Ukraine”.
Misha Pravylnyi is a journalist, publicist and rapper. Our winner is the editor-in-chief of the Rap.ua portal, which has been covering the independent Ukrainian scene for many years. As well as the presenter and screenwriter of many projects of the Some People formation, dedicated to the stories of artists who are changing Ukraine. With the beginning of a full-scale war, while staying in the basement of the Kharkiv Palace of Labor during the shelling of the city, Misha began to write poems and put them to music – this is how the music albums “The Rule of Two Walls” and “I Was Presented With War” appeared. All his songs are united by the goal of realistically highlighting our present.
