Anna from Kharkiv is the owner of an equestrian school for children. Due to russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the horses began to run out of food, as hay remained in the occupied territory. In addition, there was enemy shelling, and one shell even hit the territory of the stable, but did not explode. The woman, together with her family, decided to evacuate the animals. (Her husband also rescued other people’s horses, sometimes the evacuation took place under fire. Today he continues to take animals out of hot spots).
They had to take their horses to Dnipropetrovsk region and Poltava region. Due to difficulties with caring for them, some animals were given to students and sold abroad. Later, the couple found a stable near Zhytomyr, where they decided to start anew.
24-year-old military serviceman Volodymyr Dubrovets from Zhytomyr oblast, a former fighter of “Azov” with the call sign “Wolf,” became the legal guardian of his brother’s 8 children. The children’s parents died in December 2022. The couple was returning home on a forest road, when their car fishtailed to the side of the road, where the vehicle was blown up by a mine. Eight children became orphans: the oldest child is 14 years old, and the youngest is two and a half months old.
