"Today Putin is killing civilians in Ukraine. Do you agree with this? Such text in Russian sounds from loudspeakers for passengers on the Moscow-Kaliningrad transit train and back, which stops at the platform of Vilnius railway station. Simultaneously, an exhibition of photos from Russia's war with Ukraine is presented on the platforms. The aim of the action is to draw the attention of Russian citizens to the Russian government's war against Ukraine and to encourage them not to remain indifferent.

Lithuanian railways company Lietuvos Geležinkeliai (LTG) together with the Lithuanian Press Photographers Club selected a total of 24 photographs reflecting the reality of war. The photos are displayed at a height where they can be seen by passengers on a transit train traveling from Moscow to Kaliningrad Region and back.

"This exhibition aims to spread the word about the war waged by the Russian government. We have selected images that emotionally convey the grim reality faced by the people of Ukraine. With this exhibition, we want to spread the message widely that there is no escape from reality in a free country. We would like to thank both the film director Evaldas Kubilius and our colleagues Maxim Dondyuk and Evgeniy Maloletka who sent us photos from the hottest spots Kyiv and Mariupol," – says Jonas Staselis, President of the Lithuanian Press Photographers Club.  

"We see the great sense in using the LTG's space to host an exhibition reflecting the Russian government's war against Ukraine. We would like to thank our partners, the press photographers, who willingly and gratuitously contributed to this initiative. Today Ukraine is fighting for its freedom at a heavy price and needs the support of all of us. This exhibition is a symbolic part of such support", – says Egidijus Lazauskas, the CEO of LTG.

Transit trains run daily from Moscow to Kaliningrad Region and back. There are also transit trains from Adler and St. Petersburg to Kaliningrad Region and back.

The trains are to slow down every time when passing the Vilnius railway station so that passengers could see the photo exhibition. On average 100 transit trains per month pass to and from Kaliningrad taken together.
