Press conference entitled: “Burning Man Ukraine team starts a fundraiser to collect USD 1 million for evacuation vehicles”

Why this is interesting:
The Burning Man Ukraine team is calling on the world community to rescue Ukrainian military and civilians from hot spots in the war zone. The Burners started The Hedgehog Temple charity fundraising project to buy 20+ new Toyota cars to evacuate people from the war zone. 

The fundraiser’s symbol is The Hedgehog Temple, this year’s Ukrainian art object at Burning Man 2023. The Hedgehog Temple is a huge structure in the form of a hedgehog, built of steel, wood, camouflage nets and 100 anti-tank obstacles — “hedgehogs,” which were exclusively made for the installation.

– Briefing on the specifics of the production of innovative camouflage nets for the needs of Ukrainian fighters at the front.

Why this is interesting:
Seasonal natural changes of the autumn-spring period bring about changes in the nature of combat operations, which become less maneuverable and more positional, as well as in the requirements for camouflage nets: their technical characteristics and quantity. After all, it is much more difficult to disguise equipment or an object without leaves on trees.
A properly selected camouflage net can mask movement on plantations and trenches and also reduce the visibility of even moving objects. Moreover, the use of different approaches to creating masking nets allows you to contain infrared radiation and reduce visibility in the thermal imager.
During the briefing, we will talk about the requirements for materials, the specifics of their search and delivery, as well as the current needs at the front.
