In cold Ukraine village, Banksy mural offers warm bath

Residents in a Ukrainian village that has been bombed claim to enjoy a warm bath under a Banksy graffiti mural.

The mural shows a man bathing in a tub. It can be found on the ground floor of what remains of an apartment block, which was attacked by Russia in March in Horenka (northwest Kyiv), and was once on the frontline of Russia’s attack on Kiev.

Tetiana Reznychenko (43), says that the drawing makes it seem like she has washed away all of the dirt that had fallen on her.

Banksy confirmed that the mural was one he had done in Ukraine. Reznychenko said that she had given Banksy’s crew a cup instant coffee at her house, as it was still cold when Banksy arrived in Ukraine to paint the mural.


She has a wood stove in her apartment but no electricity, heating or running water for winter.

“Winter has begun, and we don’t know where the next step will take us.” She stated that firefighters had brought non-drinking water to our home. It would freeze if it was not moved inside.

She and her neighbors persevere despite all of the challenges.


“Ukrainian people adapt all to everything. No light? No problem. It’s not a problem. There are candles.

“When neighbors have electricity we go to their houses and charge their phones and power banks. What about water? It’s okay. We were able to arrange water delivery, even though the government was not involved.”
