On July 17, 2014, a passenger jet crashed over eastern Ukraine. All 298 people on board were killed. Was it a technical malfunction? Human error? In fact, it was a Russian military operation. Iron Butterflies exposes propaganda, manipulation, and disinformation in a war that broke out well before 2022.

    The protests on the Maidan gave rise to the BABYLON '13 project. This collective, of which Roman Liubyi is a member, produces documentary clips and distributes them via social networks. Inspired by this, Liubyi's first documentary film WAR NOTE was created in 2020, edited from found footage of Ukrainian soldiers. IRON BUTTERFLIES follows on thematically from this.
