It is no secret what is going on in Ukraine, Constantine Baranovskyi doesn’t want to put the focus on that, instead, he set out to create something positive. So we asked him to tell us something about his work and this is what he told us:

“The footage in this video isn’t focused on skating skill levels or impressive tricks, but rather on capturing the essence of skating in this moment. Do not misunderstand me, we’re grateful for every chance to skateboard given the current circumstances in Ukraine, and that’s no exaggeration. Skateboarding is what keeps us sane. It helps us to divert our attention from the chaos and maintain our spirits. This video encapsulates that sense of solace and escape. It’s a tribute to all the skaters currently in Ukraine. Together, we’ll overcome this.”
