The State of War, an anthology of essays by Ukrainian intellectuals about the Russian-Ukrainian war from the Meridian Czernowitz publishing house has been released in English. This was reported on the publisher’s Facebook page.


Authors of 35 essays included in the English-language edition of State of War: Alim Aliev, Sofia Andrukhovych, Yuriy Andrukhovych, Stanislav Aseyev, Khrystyna Venhryniuk, Tamara Hundorova, Larysa Denysenko, Lyubomyr Deresh, Serhiy Zhadan, Oksana Zabuzhko, Peter Zalmayev, Kateryna Kalytko, Vakhtang Kebuladze, Max Kidruk, Oleh Kotsarev, Yevhenia Kuznetsova, Bogdan Logvynenko, Andriy Lyubka, Roman Malynovsky, Oleksandr Mykhed, Julia Musakovska, Yulia Payevska (Taira), Ihor Pomerantsev, Vitaly Portnikov, Mariana Prokhasko, Taras Prokhasko, Valeriy Puzik, Volodymyr Rafeyenko, Mykola Riabchuk, Maryana Savka, Iryna Fingerova, Iryna Tsilyk, Artem Chapeye, Artem Chekh, and Volodymyr Sheiko.


The Ukrainian-language version of the anthology contains texts by 50 authors.


The publication was curated and compiled by Evgenia Lopata and Andriy Lyubka. “Each of these texts delves into the current war’s harsh and unsettling realities because we believe in the unbridled power of truth. We hold dear the memories and sentiments of those who bore witness to the first year of this war and strive to do all we can to ensure this war is never relegated to obscurity. We also hope that future generations who come across this book will understand that war is one of the most devastating things to happen to humanity. However, there are times when we must fight and defend our home,” the editors note.


The foreword to the collection was written by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valeriy Zaluzhny. According to him, the true stories of the year 2022 must be preserved and told to the world with a Ukrainian voice, and the State of War anthology serves this purpose.


The cover of the publication features a painting “Angel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine” by a contemporary Ukrainian artist Matviy Weisberg.
