In 2014, mischievous events happened that shocked the whole Ukraine.
Dark times came to Donetsk and Luhansk. Everyone had to leave their homes. I'm very sorry. Young men left their homes to protect their homes. Mothers worry about their sons and husbands.
I left for Kharkiv Oblast. I had to go to a new school and look for new friends.
I really want to go back home to see my old friends. I haven't seen them for five years. I miss them dearly. I pray to God that these dark days will pass and peace will come. I really want to go home.
Peace is all my family 'wants. I want to return home, to my hometown. And I wish my friends were able to come back.
