Kiril

The boy was born in Kharkiv region just nine months ago, but he will never see his father, who was taken away by the war. The occupants shot the young man when he was returning home from work. Near the hospital where Kirill’s father worked, there was one of the Russian checkpoints. One day the man went missing, and after a while, his body was found in a nearby village. When the boy and his mother were forced to move to another city, their house was destroyed. Now they are getting used to new living conditions and dream that the war will end soon and the long-awaited peace will come.

Daria

The girl was born in Zaporizhzhya region. On March 2, more than 200 units of enemy equipment entered their village. Russian soldiers went from house to house and checked the people there. When the occupants entered Daria’s house, the girl was only with her mother. Her father went outside at that time. A few minutes later, a shot was heard. Daria’s mother ran out into the yard and saw her husband lying on the ground. It was forbidden to leave the house. Russian soldiers came to the family several times and interrogated them. Only on the third day, they managed to bury the man. Subsequently, the family left their native village, as Daria’s mother needed cancer treatment.

Mykolai and Volodymyr

Mykolai and
Volodymyr

The guys are from Mariupol. They have already survived the war, bombing, and air strikes. Russian soldiers shot their father when the family was fleeing from the explosions. The guys were sitting in the basement without water, light, and heat for 26 days, making lamps from oil and cotton wool. Mother cooked food on the fire; Arsen and Volodymyr chopped wood. Every day they sat down together to pray – they begged God to save them during each explosion. The boys wrote down their wishes on paper, which they should fulfill after the war. One day a shell hit the house where they were hiding in the basement. The family was forced to look for another shelter because of the fire. They say that they survived by a miracle, and their hometown became a continuous cemetery.

Maksym

The father of four-year-old Maksym is a brave fighter. He was mobilized to Mariupol from the first days of the war. He died tragically due to hostilities, leaving his son without parental care and his wife without male support. Maksym asks daily: “Where is our father? When will he come home?” Maksym’s mother wants to help her son experience the happy moments of his childhood and raise him as a good child for the glory of Ukraine.

Victoria

Victoria never saw her father – a brave warrior who fought for a happy future for his country. The man died at the hands of the Russian occupiers near Irpen two months before Victoria was born. He suggested a name for his daughter as soon as he discovered a girl would be born. Victoria means “victory.” Her mother believes the girl will be delighted because she already has her own Guardian Angel.
