The 79th Venice Film Festival opened with a speech by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Then credits appeared on the screen, but not with the names of the authors and creators of the cinema, but with the names of Ukrainian children killed by Russia.
After the credits, the words "To be continued?" appeared on the screen. [Will there be a continuation?], and Zelensky stressed that what the answer to this question will be depends on all of us.
Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, 380 children have been killed, 736 more children have been injured, and over 7,000 children have been deported to Russia.
