Photographer's Note

We have seen recently some photos from Lviv and Kyiv, so here is another wonderful Ukrainian town - Odessa.
I have seen on the Internet, that they prepare Odessa for the Russian attack. Here is the view of the centre of Odessa, with the Richelieu Monument. Richelieu sees the famous Potemkin Stairs. I hope that the Russian will not go on these stairs like in the Eisenstein movie. At the moment, near the most important monuments, there are bags with sand to protect them.
There are more and more refugees in Poland, also in Warsaw. And the war is more and more cruel and senseless. They use weapons that are forbidden.

The Potemkin Stairs are a giant stairway in Odessa, They are considered a formal entrance into the city from the direction of the sea and are the best-known symbol of the town. The staircase extends for 142 meters, but it gives the illusion of greater length. At the top of the stairs is the Duke de Richelieu Monument, depicting Odessa's town governor. The Roman-toga figure was designed by the Russian sculptor, Ivan Petrovich Martos (17541835). The statue was cast in bronze by Yefimov and unveiled in 1826. It is the first monument erected in the city. (From Wikipedia)
