More than 20 adults and three very small children died

Еmotional post and emotional pic.

July 14, Vinnytsia. My best friend Tanya told me about the place where the 3 shells just hit, this is the square next to her house, medical center and parking. She walked around this square with a child just the day before, in same time. More than 20 adults and three very small children died, more than hundred was injured.

I react very badly now to children's deaths. Actually, I don't want to draw such pictures at all. with each pic, starting with the first, I thought that it would be the last. It doesn't give me any pleasure to make stories with ruined cities photo, I want to show photos of travels in the East, bamboo mountains and ancient gardens of past dynasties again .

I want to draw pictures that are not related to war diaries, politics, falling rockets and so on. but it doesn't work very well for me. every time I open the news, I am most afraid of seeing something about Kyiv there. Because my family is there and the news is almost always about missile hits.

Today it was about Mykolaiv(two largest universities!), yesterday about Vinnytsia, two days ago about Kharkiv. About front-line cities, of course, too, there is an endless stream of news. Endless destruction.
