The terrorists of the self-styled Donbas republics of "DPR" and "LPR" will be represented by "acting coal industry minister" of "DPR" Eduard Golenko. The list of the guests is still being agreed.

Organizers believe the war-destroyed mines of the Donbas need to be turned into museums, as long as "the posed threat to destroy the industrial heritage facilities is comparable to that with recent events in Palmyra (Syria), where the objects of global cultural heritage were barbarically destroyed in combat activities."

The exhibit will showcase "photographs of industrial Donbas since its inception (mid-19th century) until now," the project description reads.
