WAR DIARY
Mitya Skater

Where and how did the first day of the war befall you?

The first day of war befell me in my room. I woke up thinking I was going skating, and here you have explosions, flying helicopters and you don’t understand what is going on. But then it was enough to take your phone for a minute and see the info everywhere that we were attacked by russians!

One month of war has passed. How have your thoughts and mood changed during this period?

On the second day of the war I enlisted in the local territorial defense. My thoughts are to kill all those russian occupants who came to our peaceful country with bad intentions! The mood is to fight! In 3 weeks, I got used to being without water, light and gas, finding everything to survive and survive!
Describe your typical day during the war period?

Now my day starts at 6 am. I brush my teeth, wash myself, do small morning exercises and a couple of pull-ups. Then I have breakfast, and go on a mission. Every day missions could be different: today you can help with food and necessary things for people, then tomorrow you can patrol the neighborhood all day long. We had a kind of humanitarian headquarters in the supermarket, where people came every day and I helped distribute water and food to them. I never thought that the day would come when people would sit in basements without food.
What will you do first after our victory?

The first thing I would like to do is to see all my beloved family and hug them. After that I will go to bed, if my house is still there, and sleep!

Glory to Ukraine!
