"A portrait is a face, eyes, and even character of a person, while his soul is his acts. Our guys, the defenders, are the people who opened their souls to others through their acts. I was just trying to record these people for history and show the country what those men are like who call themselves and feel themselves Ukrainians.

"All of them are united around the idea to defend their land and revenge for their killed comrades," Yasynska said.

The exhibit has been traveling around Ukraine since March 2016, has visited large cities and hometowns of the photographed heroes.
