From Lyuda (Day 294): Dear brothers and sisters, I want to thank you for your prayers and help. We had a quiet night and we have electricity this morning.
But the news are not very good. This morning there was a massive attack on Kiev. Thirteen drones were sent to Kiev area and it’s good to know that they were destroyed in the air and only their parts fell down. Attacks of drones have become frequent. Russia gets them from Iran and we read about the negotiations that Russia continues with Iran planning to buy thousands of drones and promising help to Iran in the war with Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Our Odessa region suffers a lot of the drone attacks that destroy our energy objects. We must be ready for more attacks that we know will happen, so now there is a lot of talk about the tips of survival in a situation without electricity in winter. People should make supplies of water and food. This is what many people have already done. There is advise for people who live in apartment buildings to move to villages and stay in detached houses with local heating.
The hardest situation now is in Donetsk region where there are fierce battles.
Bakhmut is the city that was taken by our army four months ago and since then the fight for the city didn’t stop even for a moment. The enemy is desperately trying to take this city back. Some refugees in our group are from Bakhmut and for them it’s very hard to see what is happening there.
Our refugees came for breakfast yesterday and we had some group talk and individual time. We had a good talk with our volunteers, the girls that help us in our work. We plan Christmas events for our group.
P.S. The photos of drones flying to Kiev, the views of Bakhmut, the breakfast with refugees yesterday
