Its author, the Italian artist Jorit, thus opposed the decision of the Bicoco University in Milan to suspend the course on the Russian writer due to a special operation of the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine. However, after a wave of criticism, the university changed its mind.

According to the Italian media, Jorit wanted to show with his fresco that culture is not nationalism.

In Naples, a portrait of Dostoevsky was painted on the walls of the local university, as a sign of the fight against the growing Russophobia in Italy.

Jorit drew a giant mural on a building in Naples, as the University said that instead of cancelled course on Dostoevsky, the university introduced a course on Ukrainian authors.
