"I became a forced migrant"

views: 1298

I've been driving people for twenty years, and never before has my tram car been so empty. I also became a forced migrant - I took my family out of the broken high-rise building in Avdiivka two years ago, but I return here to work every day.

At the beginning of hostilities, tram drivers and conductors worked late into the night, risking their lives. Fragments of shells hit the trams, one passed 20-30 centimeters from the driver. Of the 21 city trams, only one survived, but the route became twice as short. Shellings and looters destroyed both the rails and wires. Now we only take workers to the plant and back for a couple of hours in the morning and in the evening.

Everyone is waiting for one thing - that everything to work out, that we will start working at full strength, that the plant will start working at full strength.
