Banksy unveils new mural in war-damaged Ukrainian town

STORY: Banksy posted a photo of the mural - a girl gymnast performing a handstand on a small pile of concrete rubble - on Instagram late on Friday (November 11). The work was painted onto the wall of a building destroyed by shelling.

Several curious onlookers, some of whom had made the 60km drive from Ukraine's capital city, Kyiv, came to see the artwork on Saturday (November 12).

"This is such a historic moment for our country, that people like Banksy and other famous figures are coming here and showing the world what Russia has done to us," said one of the visiting Kyivans, 31 year-old Alina Mazur.
