Story of Ivan Shylo, QA Assurance Manager at HRForecast
I woke up at 5 a.m. from three powerful explosions; we live about 2 km from Boryspil airport. I went outside like all our neighbors. There were two more explosions; we took our backpacks, some of them were already packed in a suitcase, the neighbors left the city to the village farther from the airport. They bought groceries along the way.
“We organized night shifts in the yard. When we hear explosions, wake everyone up and run to the basement.”
My family and I have equipped the basement to make it more comfortable for the children. We organize night shifts in the yard. If we hear explosions, wake everyone up and run to the basement.
This is a photo of Ivan’s son, he took the day before the full-scale Russian invasion in Ukraine. The boy stands next to the monument to the young Taras Shevchenko.
We are rich, 7 adults, 4 children (9 years, 6 years, 5 years, 6 months). Everything has changed; everyone listens to the sounds, Today was the first night that our children and wives slept in the house in normal beds, and I had to wake them up and move them to the basement.
Ukrainians will win. I am proud of Ukrainians; the Kremlin dwarf wanted to wreak havoc on us, we became even stronger. Slava Ukraini! Glory to Ukraine!
