Winter 2015


National flag of country ukraine (blue, yellow color)

At the beginning of this year, I could not even imagine that this year my keywords would be "life values."

Before the war in Ukraine began, we lived in a beautiful city in the South of Ukraine - Odesa! We had a lot there - our parents near us, a wonderful house and comfortable apartments, good jobs and a respectable position in the community.

But this awful and unreasonable war changed everything. I will never forget 24 February 2022, when the first bombs fall near our apartments.

On one side, we had a lot, but on the other hand, we had to rescue our kids from war. Nobody in the world mustn't see all horrors of war, especially children.

We had to leave Ukraine and leave many things there, but at that moment, I understood that the most valuable things you can put in your hand – are your wife's and kids' hands.
