New Mural in Support of Ukraine Appeared on the Czech Parliament Building in Prague

On the morning of Friday, February 24th, a new mural by one of the best Czech street artists, Dmitry Proškin, better known by his pseudonym ChemiS, was unveiled in the center of Prague.

The mural is located on the facade of the lower house of the Czech parliament.

It is painted on a freestanding stand (not on the wall of the historical building).

It depicts a 7-year-old girl, Amelia, who became one of the symbols of hope during the first difficult days of the full-scale Russian invasion – a video of her singing “Let It Go” from the Disney cartoon “Frozen” in a Kiev bomb shelter went around the world.

The ceremony was attended by representatives of the Ukrainian embassy, Czech politicians, and Ukrainian refugees.

“One of the symbols of the war was a seven-year-old girl Amelia, who shocked the world at the very beginning of the war by singing her famous song right from a bomb shelter in Kiev. For me, she is a symbol of great hope,” said the Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Parliament, Markéta Pekarová Adamová.

We should remind you that Dmitry Proškin also has another touching work in support of Ukraine – a drawing of a girl defending her favorite fairytale characters with a Ukrainian flag.

Friday’s session of the Chamber of Deputies started with a minute of silence to commemorate the victims of the Russian war on Ukraine.
