We picked up a large family, a woman and her six children, from a checkpoint in Sloviansk. They came up to our soldiers early in the morning on foot. They retold how separatists drove up to their residential area, fired at a checkpoint, and left quickly. In response, our [servicemen] shot at the same place…
Our guys met them, put them in the dugout, fed them, and called us asking to urgently transport them to Izium [city in Kharkiv Oblast] and help out with housing. We took them practically from under fire; a sniper was working on the separatists’ side, journalists were already working here trying to interview.
We [brought] them to Izium and gave them 600 Hryvnias [USD $51] for the necessities, from our card on which we receive money to help the soldiers–but diapers first and foremost. [We] found them a house in Borovsk Raion [district] and the SFV (Self-defense Fighting Vehicle) 🙂 🙂 🙂 has taken the family to a safe place.
Glory to Ukraine!
