It was the first day since February 24 that I didn’t start my morning with the Khuiyoviy Kharkiv and Khuiyovе KTZ* Telegram channels because I had arrived there and finally saw everything with my own eyes. At home, KTZ (the Kharkiv Tank Plant) is where my dad lives. He doesn’t often go to the bomb shelter, although it’s quite neat and in his own section’s entryway. It’s …

About humans and animals. Katya, Kateryna Streltsova, my wife, works in a pet store. From the first days of the war, almost every day, we had to feed animals (because there was no one else left). We were out of the store only on February 26 (the enemy’s sabotage and reconnaissance group’s breakthrough to the center of the city) and March 1 (shelling of Kharkiv Regional State Administration). …

Putin and all of his horde offended my street today. The name of the street is Verkhnioudynska and the old name was Savkin Yar. One day, more than hundred years ago, there was a house here, where the genius philosopher and poet Hryhoriy Savych Skovoroda lived. The name of the street was changed then, but everyone knew after whom the street, …

Something good from today: I was still in Kyiv when I mailed some flower seeds — verbena and sage — to Maryna in Kharkiv. And on the 24th of February, at night, my daughter called us and said that Kharkiv is getting bombed… a war! I thought about that envelope [with the seeds] a few times, curious about where it was now. It didn’t even have a postal code. But I didn’t write to Maryna about …

The text contains profanity My mom’s couldn’t-care-less attitude is impressive beyond words. While these motherf**ckers are hammering Kharkiv, my mom is making borshch, and it’s the abso-f**cking-lute best borshch you’ve ever had. ‘Cause what seek-shelter warning are you even talking about when the kids haven’t even been fed properly yet? And any assh*le who dares tell my mom how to live …
