My name is Alina, I'm from Bakhmut. On the morning of February 24, I woke up from my parents' words that the war had begun. Everyone, without exception, was shocked by this terrible news. There were crazy queues in the shops for several hours, the products were getting smaller and smaller. We lived in fear for a whole month and did not know what to do next.
But finally, on April 5, we made a choice that was not easy for our family - to leave the city. We left early in the morning, the traffic jams were unrealistic. It seemed that the entire population of the city decided to go to a safer place in one day. After 12 hours we were in Dnipro and stayed overnight in a rented apartment. After sleeping one night, we set off again. And in the evening they were in the Kirovohrad region, in the village, and stayed there to live for a while. We lived there for about a month. It is in this village incredible nature, fresh air. People are very sincere and kind. But at some point my family and I decided to move on.
I am currently in Odesa. This is where I lived for several years as a child. Odesa is an incredible city, with its history, infrastructure and great prospects for the future. I recently walked in Victory Park, it is located near the center. And the name of this park did not leave me indifferent. The big word is "VICTORY", to which we have been striving for more than 100 days. I moved to Odessa recently, but I'm already looking for a job and leisure. Because of the war, my life changed forever. And now all the people of Ukraine want one thing - PEACE! And return to your homes as soon as possible.
