In the artist’s own words: “Inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, 31 years after the notorious disaster, still stands the very last Soviet flag in the entire nation of Ukraine today. The Chernobyl disaster somewhat expedited the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and it’s not hard to understand why Ukrainian people chose to keep that one flag there.”
