Join Us We Need Your Help
Due to possible threats to the security of this family, we chose to unpublish the video. The family remains under occupation, and truly needs help.
Good morning! My name is Yuliya. I live in the occupied territory of the Zaporizhzhya region, the town of Melitopol. I am a mother of many children, I have 4 children. Artem is 13 years old, Polina is 14 years old, and Myroslava is 6 years old, she was supposed to go to the first grade this year, but now she is studying online, because I do not want to send my child to a russian school. The youngest child is Yaroslava, she is 2 years old. Since the beginning of the war, we were occupied by russia, now we are under occupation, everything Ukrainian is forbidden to us, we cannot communicate freely in the Ukrainian language, we cannot do anything, nothing at all. They force us to live by their rules, they intimidate us, and they intimidate our children. We no longer have anything Ukrainian, everything is russian and of poor quality. It’s bad for the kids and bad for everyone. They can come to your house and if they like the house, they can just evict you from your house. I lost my job, my husband lost his job, and we have no money even for the most necessary things – medicine, food, for bread. I am asking everyone to help my family in this difficult situation, I will be very grateful.
