Since settling in Kyiv, Izolyatsiya (Isolation) has become one of the capital’s major cultural institutions, but its employees still dream of returning to Donetsk when the war ends.

“We will return,” says Mykhailo Glubokyi, Izolyatsiya’s project coordinator, during a Kyiv Post interview from the group’s new headquarters – a former laboratory of Kyiv Shipbuilding and Ship Repair plant.
