She came to Ukraine with her family. Instead of leaving for Prague, she had to hide in a shelter iROZHLAS
“We slept for two hours yesterday. We probably won’t sleep at all today,“ describes Yaroslav from Kiev, who has lived in Prague since 2016.
But you still go to Ukraine with your family. She still visited her relatives after the end of the probationary period. But on the morning of February 24, she was awakened by strong explosions. “It simply came to our notice then. We took everything. Clothes, drugs, documents, food. At the last minute, I threw childhood photos into my suitcase. We took our dogs and cats and ran to the car,He says.
People have been hiding in the Ukrainian capital for more than a day. Oil is running low and false information is spreading. Yaroslava’s family found shelter with relatives. “We are in a smaller town below Kiev. They have a house there with a cellar, which now serves as a shelter for us,He says.

Tanks and military equipment are traveling to Kiev from the Russian and Belarusian sides. The effort to leave the country as soon as possible also complicates the traffic situation. “Going to Poland makes no sense at all, because the biggest roads are closed and dangerous. Shooting can be heard everywhere. The bridges are mostly destroyed, “he says Jaroslava.
According to the young student, the conflict should be resolved in Ukraine to prevent world war. He adds that there is a need for European states to attack the country strongly physically. According to Jaroslava, the sanctions will not stop Russian President Vladimir Putin. “If human aid from the West does not arrive in Ukraine, in ten years’ time Poland, Estonia or Romania will be experiencing the same catastrophe as we do now,” he said.
The student also mentions the need to adapt trains from large Ukrainian cities directly to Europe to transport women, children and the elderly to safety.
