In this week’s The Orcadian

This week’s edition of The Orcadian is now available in shops and online.

On the front page, we share the stories of Orkney-based Ukrainian refugees, two years on from the outbreak of war. Oksana Barabash, who lives in Kirkwall, now faces life without her husband, who paid the ultimate sacrifice in giving his life for his country.

Also on the front — The Orcadian exclusively shares the discovery of a mystery medieval painting with references to Orkney, which historians say could be “revelatory”.
