Little did we know that this would be the last film shot in Ukraine before a devastating war broke out with Russia. The memories we hold from our time in Ukraine are bittersweet. On the one hand, we treasure the experience of collaborating with such a passionate and talented cast and crew, and on the other hand, our hearts ache for the people of Ukraine who have been impacted by the conflict.

"Love in Ukraine" is a film that celebrates the human spirit and the power of love to transcend borders and barriers. The film tells the story of two people from different worlds who fall in love in the midst of cultural differences and societal expectations.

As a filmmaker, it was important for me to capture the essence of Ukraine's rich culture and history, and showcase the beauty of its landscapes and people. We hope that our film can serve as a tribute to the country and its people, reminding viewers of the love, warmth, and resilience that exists in Ukraine.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Ukraine as they continue to navigate this difficult time. We hope that peace will soon be restored, and that the country can return to the warm and welcoming place that we experienced during our time there.
