“I live in this room.”
Oleksii, Kyiv region, 4 recordings
“I live in this room.”
My name is […] Oleksiy Mykolayovich. I live in […], I am 10 and a half years old. The war between Russia and Ukraine came to us, and our apartment became a bomb shelter. I want to show it to you. These are the conditions we are living in during the night (On the video Oleksiy is showing blankets on the floor of hallway, near the door, and bathroom). Showing a small and narrow bathroom, with many blankets on the floor between the bathtub and the washing machine, Oleksiy says, “I live in this room.”
My name is […] Oleksii Mykolayovich! I live in […], I am 10 and a half years old and I am studying at school number […]. I will continue my story about the war between Russia and Ukraine. In my apartment, during the war, three major holidays took place: my sister’s birthday, my father’s birthday, and my patron saint day. During all these holidays I only had two dreams–for this war to stop and for President Putin to die. Why have I wished for him to be dead? Because, I think, that Putin’s actions, which he does to Ukraine, are not right!
My name is […] Oleksii Mykolayovich! I live in […], I am studying at school number […], I am 10 and a half years old. I will continue my story about the war between Russia and Ukraine. Almost every day we hear explosions in our neighborhood. I want to tell you about our daily routine. We wake up, drink some tea, and then we run out to find some food–bread and milk, because bread is the staple of life! Then we come back home and eat this, the most delicious bread! We constantly stand in a queue for 30 or 40 minutes just for one loaf of bread, which is given to every person. Sometimes, we go out with my Daddy for a walk, and we are caught by the sound of explosions or sirens. When we hear sirens, we run back home, so we are not caught in any trouble.
My name is […] Oleksiy Mykolayovich, I am 10 and a half years old! I live in […], during the war between Russia and Ukraine, I am studying at school number […]. Today, exactly on the 39th day of war between Russia and Ukraine, many sirens were heard and many air strike alerts were heard. We heard jets and fighter aircrafts many times. We heard unidentified flying objects pass over many times. We didn’t plan to flee, but if there are strong circumstances such as a fire starting near our apartment, or our place being shelled, we will leave the city. I have a grandmother and an aunt; we haven’t seen them for almost a year. I really want to see them, I really want to meet them!
