Following the unfolding events in Ukraine, I was disturbed and alarmed like many. In Leicester, there is a longstanding Ukranian community and where I grew up in the city, I went to school with, lived near and worked with Ukranians, who I counted as friends, colleagues and neighbours. I made these drawings in 2014 but never published them. Looking at them again, I feel I should and also to make more as the days unfold. Darkest of dark times.
