"People died. Trouble has come"

views: 406

My father-Teplov Ivan Ivanovych, born in 1916, died in the Great Patriotic war. Mother-Teplova Yevdokia Opanasivna, a nurse, born in 1920, lived 96 years. I grew up half-orphaned in a large rural family.

In started school in 1948. I successfully studied in seven classes of Ukrainian school. I graduated from the courses of accountants of the collective farm. I  went to work on Kurdiumivka brick factory in the position of  an accountant. I successfully graduated from Donetsk chemical and technological College, qualified as an accountant. I  passed all stages of accounting and was appointed a chief accountant in 1969. I worked in this responsible position until my retirement. The total work experience in one company equaled to  about 50 years. In 1995, I retired.

I  was married and am currently a widow. I have two sons born in 1960 and 1970.

Kurdiumivka brick factory produced building bricks, it  began to give plans for development of the private sector. The village grew, engaged in landscaping, paved the streets, built rides, equipped recreation areas for workers. The village had an inpatient hospital, an ambulance on duty, and a kindergarten able to accept 240 kids.

In 1961, the plant began to produce acid-resistant bricks that could withstand aggressive environments. They were shipped by rail cars all over the country for the chemical industry. Our acid-resistant material was in great demand.

Due to Perestroika, production problems began, numerous connections with consumers were cut off, salary arrears appeared, and barter transactions were introduced.

No one expected that war would begin in the Donbas, as a result of which there was a direct hit to the plant during the attacks. Many private homes were damaged and people were killed. The trouble came. We were sitting in the cellars. The railway was not functioning, and it was not possible to go to the city for medicine or food.

This is when Rinat Akhmetov's humanitarian aid arrived. Many thanks to Rinat Leonidovych for such invaluable support, it helps to survive in this difficult situation. Many thanks and a low bow to this person and his Foundation "Aid". May God protect him, and we wish him well-being and good health for many years to come.

We are waiting and hoping that the long-awaited peace will come soon.
