Elena Report-Nikopol, Ukraine

Elena lives alone.

All of her family moved out of the city and asked her to do the same, but she said that this is her city, and she would never leave it. When the shell hit, she was sleeping in the corridor and this is why she’s still alive. All residents are warned to use the “2 wall rule.” When the alarms go off, everyone should either be in a shelter or put 2 walls between themselves and the outside. Most of the time, there isn’t enough warning to get to a shelter.
