Time Out says

On the day before Ukraine was invaded by Russia in February, the Kyiv City Ballet unwittingly took one of the final flights out of the city—to Paris, as part of a long-planned tour—and has not been able to return back to Ukraine due to the ongoing war. The company embarks on its first-ever tour of the United States this fall, including a two-night stint in Chicago at the Auditorium Theatre, where it will perform a mixed repertoire that includes the new work Tribute to Peace created by artistic director Ivan Kozlov and deputy director Ekaterina Kozlova.
