I went to the city center to film the famous landmarks which used to be nicely illuminated at peaceful time. The show will be as a friendly talk during which I’ll share with you pictures and some short videos. My main concern is the unexpected power outages which are caused by the daily Russian attacks on our infrastructure. It’s hard to predict what might happen on the date of our show. The schedule of the blackout might change if there’s another attack. If I don’t appear for the show, it means that there was another attack and mobile Internet doesn’t work to let you know about it. But I'm Olga in Kyiv, and I am awaiting you all. Bring a friend if you'd like.”
