The horror of war
"It all started in February 2022. My son called me to say that a column of Russian tanks was approaching. He told me to hide. We put Anya in the bathroom, covered her with cushions and lay down on top of her. The fighting started. The walls began to shake and the roof was coming off. After a while it got quiet.
The next day, as I was walking home with a bucket full of milk, I heard a plane. Then a huge explosion. I sat down and protected my head. The shock wave blew out the windows and destroyed the back of our farmhouse. I don't know how we survived. That's when we realised we had to run away," says Olena, Anya's grandmother. Like millions of other people in Ukraine, Anya's family had to leave everything to find safety. Since August, the four of them have been living in a converted room in a former village school.
