I live near the line of demarcation. We haven't heard the sounds of silence in our village for a long time. Constant shooting is all we hear.
People have left. Over half of the village residents have already left. Houses were destroyed by shells. A shell broke through the roof of my house two years ago. My husband died before we could restore the roof.
I have to live in a summer kitchen. Without doubt, it is impossible to live like this.
Houses are being destroyed, they are falling apart or disassembled. You can say that shooting is happening every evening. I've already survived two wars…
