When the war came, we were asleep. My husband is a military man, he is a border guard. On the night of February 24, we woke up to a call. A close friend called us and said to the husband: “come to us, it’s started.” Since that day, we have not seen my husband for 5 months. Everything has changed. We had neither food nor medicine. It was nothing to treat children. The occupiers came to us on March 6, they took everything from us. We cooked food from leftovers, we didn’t have any food that could be stored for a long time, and we didn’t even have milk for the children. I did not receive any humanitarian aid from the occupiers. The children reacted with difficulty because russian planes were flying over our heads. It was very terrible. We saw them launch rockets to other cities. I have 2 children: Lyubov is 7 years old, and Myroslava is 3 years old. Finally, I was able to move to the unoccupied territory of Ukraine. The russian troops barely let us go. We walked 7 km. They were shooting. We moved to the Dnipropetrovsk region. I rent an apartment here, my sister rents an apartment and she put us in her place. We pay for the apartment rent. I need medicine for children. All this is expensive. Children need clothes to go to kindergarten and school. The war will end someday, children need to learn. We lived under the russian self-proclaimed republic of the LNR for 3.5 months. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone, it’s very scary. I am afraid that in one moment life may end for my children, my husband, or my family, which remained in the occupation. My parents remained in the occupation, they need help and I cannot help them in any way. My family lives from what they grew up in the garden. I am asking for help for my family.
