After a couple of hours, he was convinced of this himself. Serhii understood that he needed to go to a safe place, but it would be difficult because his father is on wheelchair. The man and his family were in a difficult situation because there was no food at all.
One day, when Serhii and his family were at home, shelling began. The family tried to run to the shelter, but behind Serhii’s back, a shell arrived, another shell exploded on the balcony, – the man recalls. The house was damaged, it was already difficult to stay in it.
