Victoria has never met her father, who was a brave warrior who fought for a happy future for his family and his country. Two months before she was born, her father died at the hands of the Russian occupiers in Irpen near the capital city of Kyiv.

When he was still alive, her father was thrilled at the news of a little girl and suggested Victoria’s name. It means “victory,” which the family knows that Ukraine will one day achieve as her guardian angel father watches over her.
