Here is Olga Wilson’s description of her piece:
A photo of a dog named Crimea. It’s sitting on ruins where his house just recently was located.
On September 29 occupiers attacked private sector of Dnipro. As a result, the whole family died: grandmother, mother and two children – boy and girl.
I’ve seen it reported that the father is a Ukrainian soldier deployed forward, which is why he is not among the dead… Just let that sink in for a minute. The reason the father was not killed in the bombardment of his family’s home in Dnipro is because he’s safer deployed forward fighting the Russian invaders of Ukraine.
A bit more on the dog named Krym/Crimea:
The dog Krym became blind and deaf after the explosion. He is currently being examined by a veterinarian.

This dog, Krym, still waits for granny Alla, mom Natasha, kids Vasylisa & Ivan. For a day now, he has been sitting, crying, on the edge of a 20-m crater, in the place where his house used to be. The dog is crying while russians launch missiles at Dnipro again. pic.twitter.com/7zBjcHCrZg
