Okay dear.
My name is Olga Shipilina. I'm from Ukriana. I was born in the city of Donetsk. But because of the war I moved to Kiev (capital of Ukraine), but due to the fact that life in the capital is very expensive, I moved to Nikolaev. Now I live in Nikolaev with my sister. her name is Katerina.
The last 2 years have been just awful for me. my sister and I were homeless because bandits killed my house. well, that there are such people as volunteers. These people saved my family.
My parents went to Russia to work. and my sister and I live in Ukraine.
earlier it was easier to talk to my parents, but now the situation is very bad. we can not visit each other. all paths are blocked. we can only talk on the phone.
My job is pharmacist. I graduated from college. but not graduated from university (last 2 course, the war began).
my sister is an economist.
we live with my sister, rent small apartment.
we are happy that we are alive.
