“War Up Close” showcased Russian military crimes in Ukraine at a VR exhibition at Shreveport University

On March 19, at the invitation of Professor Alexander Mikaberidze, the “War Up Close” team conducted a VR exhibition at Shreveport University in Louisiana.

The project was represented by Mykola Omelchenko, the photographer of “War Up Close,” and Oleksandr Krapivkin, the North American community manager at the organization “Call.” The “Call” team organizes multifaceted events to support Ukraine and promote our culture worldwide. The exhibition at Shreveport University was attended by approximately 120 guests.

“I am so impressed by the genuine sympathy of everyone who, through virtual reality goggles, became the first witnesses to military crimes in Ukraine. They saw the scale of destruction, they felt it, transported through modern technology to the streets of Ukrainian cities. Now these people will be able to debunk Kremlin propaganda when they hear it,” comments Oleksandr Krapivkin.

This was the second university in Louisiana to host the “War Up Close” exhibition. On March 15, we held an event at Xavier University in New Orleans.
