THE REAL SAINTS WHO ARE SAVING UKRAINE

Help us capture their stories

Starting February 24th, 2022, millions of people in Ukraine have resisted the Russian invasion of their country. Some streamed towards new front lines that stretched hundreds of kilometers on sea, land, and air, and some have chosen to dedicate their skills whatever they might be to help the country fight.

This is a book about the personal sacrifice of people who chose to resist this brutal and barbaric invasion, happening in Europe in the 21st century as the whole world watches. This is a book about sainthood in a godless time.

Together with the award-winning Ukrainian photographer Sasha Maslov and the Kyiv-based publishing house Osnovy, Saint Javelin is making a documentary photobook that will crystallize the faces and stories of modern-day Ukrainian Saints in history.
