Her building is used by fighters for the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic to coordinate efforts to gain control of the Donetsk airport, one of the most heavily contested ongoing battles of the war in eastern Ukraine.

Brendan Hoffman, photographer-in-residence at the Daily Freeman-Journal, brings his exhibit of photographs entitled War in Ukraine to Webster City Jan. 20 through 26.

The war in eastern Ukraine began nearly six years ago. After showing the work last year at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art in Chicago, photographer Brendan Hoffman brings an exhibition of his pictures from Ukraine here to Webster City. With Ukraine repeatedly making headlines, Hoffman offers a nuanced perspective on this ongoing crisis.

The exhibit will be presented at 620 Second St., Monday, Jan 20 through Sunday, Jan. 26. 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Hoffman, who has lived and worked in Ukraine for several years, will be in attendance at the opening night of the exhibit. He will be available to answer questions and visit with those attending Jan. 20.
