The term maskirovka commonly refers to a Russian tradition of covert warfare
and military deception, and it has recently reemerged to describe Russian
politics toward Ukraine since the Maidan uprising. The “hybrid war” in eastern
Ukraine has never been officially declared, yet in Crimea masked special
forces, so-called “green men,” have occupied Ukrainian territory. On the other
hand, masks also played a crucial role in protecting the Maidan protesters
from tear gas, and helped to hide their identities from the authorities.
The publication presents photographs and interviews made in Kyiv, Ukraine,
between October 2016 and July 2017, depicting the LGBTQI and techno
scene. As Tobias Zielony explains, “I chose the title Maskirovka because it
refers to the fragile and treacherous situation in which the protagonists live
and act.”
