Occupation experience

March 9, 2022, Ruslan Havrylyuk — Today my family and I escaped from hell near Makariv city.

11 days of occupation, 11 days of constant artillery fire, tanks, aircraft, machine guns, hail, without electricity, any communications, internet, access to medicines and food, more than 11 days with children and parents in basements, 11 days of frightened children’s eyes and panic fear — now it’s over.

These days there were enemy tanks in the garden, armored personnel carriers in the yard, russian machine guns with green laser sights in the house.

We have managed to move away from the horrors of the Russian war, which continues to inflict bloody wounds on our native Ukraine.

It is very strange not to hear explosions for several hours in a row, explosions that we are used to living with day and night … It is an incredible feeling to be in the area under our control, to see the UA fighters.

Thanks to those who cared about us these days. My thoughts now are with those who remained there, in the war zone, surrounded by the occupiers, who defends our country.

The only desire now is to cleanse our land of this evil.
