Russians destroyed 7 out of 10 unique stained glass windows at KNU

The stained glass windows were created in 1986 by Ukrainian artist Larissa Mischenko.



A blast wave damaged the modernist complex of the biology departments and knocked out unique stained glass windows from 1986. The stained glass windows glorify the sections of biology science. The subjects for them were suggested by professors and associate professors from all departments.

Dmytro Solovyov, the author of the Ukrainian Modernism project, said on the university's Facebook page:

The author of the stained glass windows is an outstanding Ukrainian artist Larisa Mischenko. And we could lose them forever. In the middle of the fuss with the removal of the rubble, the stained glass, which should be restored, could be thrown in the trash, as it often happens with us. Understanding this danger, I rushed to KNU and met with the deans of both departments. We agreed on cooperation and decided to restore a unique object of Ukrainian artistic heritage. I separately noted the need for restoration, not for creating a new work - the deans agreed. So we will work. Ra

Dmitry Solovyov added:

My colleagues and I are already gathering a consilium of restorers and specialists. If you know such people, connect us
