The Chosen Family

“I didn’t know how to cope with his death. I started baking cakes like mad, but it didn’t help. When I heard from a friend that he joined a volunteer battalion to fight against separatists, I finally knew what to do. My mom couldn‘ t bear to leave our family fat in Luhansk. Nowadays she is afraid to go out on the streets because if the information about me, being a volunteer for the Ukrainian army, comes out, she won’t be safe anymore. Now that I’m on the official death list of the separatists, the risk is even higher.”
