Photographer's Note

I was three times in Ukraine. In 2003, I visited Kyiv, in 2010 I was in Ukrainian Crimea and in 2019 in Podilj and Lviv. So I can tell that I know Ukraine quite well and I have many photos, not difficult to find something for TE, but not so many with blue and yellow.
But here it is. An interesting feature of Orthodox Monastery Architecture are the Gate- Churches. Here is such a gate with the church over it in Petchersk Lavra.

Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra means Kyiv Monastery of the Caves, is a historic Eastern Orthodox Christian monastery.

Since its foundation as the cave monastery in 1051, the Lavra has been a preeminent center of Eastern Orthodox Christianity in Eastern Europe. Together with the Saint Sophia Cathedral, it is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. {Wikipedia}

All around the world people condemn the cruel war against Ukraine and support the Ukrainian people. Inm Poland there are many spontaneous actions, people invite the refugees to their homes.

In Workshop another Gate-Church from Lavra.
