    I am touched that you have organized a film festival with the purpose of helping your country. I am grateful for pointing out that there is something that can be done even if you live in a distant country. My short animation has been shown 4 times in Ukraine so far. And it was very meaningful for me to screen my film at your film festival in Belgium.
