"I intend to stay here till the end"

views: 1211

I live with my nine-year-old daughter near the Donetsk International Airport. As long as my house is intact, I'm not going anywhere. I intend to stay here till the end. We are all residence of Donetsk: my parents, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers. This is where my roots are. So why should I go anywhere?

And 93% of civilians living in the uncontrolled territories are not going to leave even though the streets are ruined. People can't get over the shock. Donetsk, Marinka, Opytne, Spartak, Krasnohorivka, and Pisky were shaking from explosions the whole week.

I intend to stay here till the end
