On February 24, 2022, the Russian Federation invaded Ukraine – in reality a war of aggression, a reaction to the rapprochement of a sovereign country to the West. For many Ukrainians, this came as no surprise. Their resistance to the Russian invasion was fierce, courageous, and surprisingly strong. Not only did the regular army fight back, civilians also armed themselves and engaged the enemy. In this volume, Émeric Lhuisset presents over 100 civilians who are part of the resistance movement. He photographed them from behind, since the danger of them being recognised with frontal portraits would be too great. He hopes someday that their faces can be shown.
