Artworks from Lviv's National Gallery - many of which were removed for safekeeping at the warn - are going back on display in key buildings around the western Ukraine city, APA reports citing BBC.

Gallery director Taras Voznyak told the New York Times putting up the work was an act of resistance.

“In order to show that we are alive, we have opened several branches," he adds.

Eighteen branches across the Lviv province are hosting works from the 65,000-piece collection, in buildings including palaces, castles and cathedrals.

There are even plans to re-open the main gallery in Lviv's ornate Potocki Palace, where two local artists have been sheltering - and producing "living art" reflecting the war - over the past two months.

“Life does not stop,” insists Mr. Voznyak.
