"Even apartment buildings are heated with cast-iron stoves"

views: 1121

My husband disappeared last autumn. He went to Donetsk, where my eldest son Anatolii lives and works as a carpenter. He went by car in October 2017, visited my son and was already on the way home. He was in a hurry. We were constantly on the line, and I know that he did not reach the Ukrainian checkpoint. The connection was lost - that's all I know. We contacted the police and international organizations. It was no good. But I do believe that he is alive.

How do we live? We made it through the winter against all odds. We have been living with no gas for several years. Even apartment buildings are heated with cast-iron stoves. We have no money to buy coal and firewood. Just fixed the window – as the ceiling falls on your head… The house is constantly renovated.
