Hello! My name is Ludmila. Me and my family are asking for your help. Two years ago a war came to my town Yasynuvata (Donetsk region, Ukraine). The government of Ukraine calls it Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO)Zone, but we call it home. There are five of us: me, my husband Alex, my daughter Anna and my parents Valentina and Nicolas. We live on the very edge of buffer zone in the epicenter of the most violent fights of the last year in a small house we’ve built and cherished for decades. The artillery is supposed to be forbidden there….but in fact it is widely used by both sides of the conflict. Every single day and night here is a living hell; people around us are dying and losing their homes. We have to sleep in our basement and be ready to leave house any second because bombardments are always unpredictable. For example, last week nine landmines (120 mm (4.7 in caliber) landed on our street and broke several neighboring houses. We were lucky to stay alive once again. The OSCE observers haven’t come to register the case (as they should do according to their mandate) because “it is too dangerous area”.You can ask me why don’t we move the house. And this is the point of my appeal. We want to, but we can’t. In the beginning of ATO we went to another city to rent the apartment and wait till this horror comes to an end, but we were so wrong. The war lasts for the third year already and there are no signs for optimistic thoughts.The rack rent took all our savings and we had to return home. Nowadays our family total gain is $500 per month (my parents are in their eighties and can do some easy housework only) and it covers the essentials– reasonable food and municipal services. Nowadays it is impossible to sell our house legally, because any real estate activities are frozen.Without selling it we are unable to buy another dwelling. So it’s like a vicious circle, where we turned into hostages. The only thing we want is a fresh start in a new safe place in a new house.
