The National Gallery in London has renamed the painting of the famous French Impressionist Edgar Degas from “Russian Dancers” to “Ukrainian Dancers”, reports The Guardian.

The work is a pastel depicting a group of dancers, whose performance in Paris the artist remains deeply fascinated.

Yellow and blue – the national colors of Ukraine, can be seen in the decorated ribbons in the hair of the dancers.

“The title of this painting has been the subject of debate for many years and is reflected in the scientific literature. However, in the last month there has been a greater focus on it due to the current situation. We think it is a good time to update the title of the painting so that it better reflects the theme of the painting, said a spokesman for the National Gallery in London.
