"Housing burned down in a matter of minutes"

views: 1297

We did not leave our area of Oktyabrsky Mine in Donetsk for a whole year. We hoped that the war would be avoided. But on 1 August 2015, two shells hit the house. It burned down in a matter of minutes.

Our six-year-old son Denys was poisoned by carbon monoxide. Fortunately, he survived. Daughter Khrystyna had a stroke. We managed to run out. Thank God, the children we saved.
