A unique exhibition dedicated to the prominent dissident Vasyl Lisovoy was opened in the Kyiv Museum of the Sixties. The exhibition featured photographs and documents illustrating the scientist's life.
Vasyl Lisovyi, one of the founders of the Ukrainian self-publishing company, worked at the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine as a scientist and teacher. In 1972, together with Yevhen Pronyuk, he published the sixth issue of the magazine "Ukrainian Herald" as a protest against the wave of repression. To show his solidarity with other political prisoners, the dissident addressed the authorities with an open letter demanding his own arrest. For this, he was sentenced to seven years in prison and three years of exile. He was released in 1983.
In 1989, Vasyl Lisovyi was rehabilitated and reinstated as a candidate of philosophical sciences, and continued his work at the Institute of Philosophy of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. This exhibition became a unique opportunity to learn more about the life path and activities of Vasyl Lisovoy, about his contribution to the struggle for freedom of speech and human rights in Ukraine.
