Congratulate us. Today we at last became mercenaries. 🙂 A messenger arrived from Kyiv bringing salaries for the soldiers of the special forces battalion of the Ukrainian National Guard Donbas. On it [the pay] we are able to afford almost everything. A monthly salary of 989 Hryvnias [$82.64 USD approx.]. For each person! We bought 500 packages of kefir [yogurt] at the store in town; we sit and drink it, bitter and rather acidic. 🙂 It’s the the heavy fate of a Ukrainian mercenary. 🙂 Periodically, mortars are fired. But with kefir, this is no longer scary. Donbas parties today!!! 🙂
P.S. The money came truly just in time. The blue and yellow paint was used up. Tomorrow we’ll get out and purchase more. Look how beautifully it turns out…
