Where to go? Where to go.

Mariupol (Ukraine)


The war in Ukraine began in 2014 when Russia annexed Crimea and attacked the Donbass. I come from Mariupol, Donetsk region, which is located in the east of Ukraine near the border with Russia. When the area where my parents lived was shelled from hail, my dad was wounded, I suggested that my parents move to me in Kyiv. It is difficult for older people to change their place of residence, and for several years their parents lived under constant shelling. My mother died due to environmental cancer in Mariupol and the stress of the war. On one of my visits to Mariupol after the death of my mother, I saw hundreds of dead jellyfish washed up on the coast. When asked why you don’t want to leave, shortly before her death, mom answered: Who needs us there? Where to go.
