Banksy appears to be confirming he’s in Ukraine after revealing his latest artwork on Instagram.
Speculation had mounted that the anonymous graffiti artist was in the war-torn country after a series of murals surfaced in the town of Borodyanka, near Kyiv.
A mural showed a man resembling Russian President Vladimir Putin flipped with a young boy during a judo match.
Another showed two children using a metal tank trap as a seesaw.
However, the mural Banksy chose to show his presence in the countryside depicts a gymnast balancing on top of a damaged building.
The graffiti artist posted three images of the mural to Instagram on Friday, with the simple caption, “Borodyanka, Ukraine.”
Russian soldiers invaded in February this year and occupied the city for weeks before it was liberated in April.
Since then, the city has been the focus of reconstruction efforts, with several high-rise buildings demolished as a result of damage caused by the fighting.
