Recall that the mural depicted a girl named Milana. In 2015, during the shelling of the Vostochny microdistrict by the Russians, her mother died, covering her child with herself. The girl herself was injured, her leg was amputated.  

Three years later, Kyiv-based artist Sasha Korban depicted a six-year-old girl orphaned by Russian aggression on a house in Mariupol.

At the end of October, it became known that the invaders were going to destroy the mural.

“The occupants called the ‘restoration of the thermal circuit’ the official reason. In fact, it was an attempt to destroy the memory of their own crimes and the shelling of our city back in 2015. After all, the mural has become a symbol of the tragedy of the war and the hope for peace and restoration,” the Mariupol City Council note
