A floral tribute to the Ukrainians who have died in the Russian invasion has gone up in the western city of Lviv.

The creator of the installation, Leo Soto, travelled from the US state of Florida to erect the memorial over the weekend.

“It’s a wall of hope,” the 27-year-old hospitality school student told France24.

Using artificial flowers that were donated from Poland, the memorial includes images of Ukrainian soldiers and civilians who have died since the war began three months ago.

The wall includes a photo of 11-year-old gymnast Kateryna Diachenko, who was killed after her home in Mariupol was struck by a Russian missile.
