From Maia Mikhaluk (384th day of ruzzzian invazion):
Amsterdam airport passport control.
Customs officer: What is your final destination?
Officer: Is it safe there already?
Me: Not really. There are missile strikes still happening regularly.
Officer: Why are you going to Kyiv then?
Me: It’s my home. My family is there.
Officer: If there are missile strikes regularly why doesn’t your family leave Ukraine?
Me: It’s our home.
I had a feeling he didn’t find my answers satisfying. But what else can I say? Ukraine is my home!
If it wasn’t for war in a few hours I would be landing in Kyiv, but instead, I will be landing in Krakow, and it will still take two trains to get home. No commercial flights to Ukraine because our sky is too crowded with ruzzian missiles.

So glad that you are claiming your home!
