How did you experience war in 2014? What do you remember from that? How old were you? How did 2014-2015 go for you?
Please tell this story in detail.

I was 14 years old. I took this situation very ardently: I went with my friends in the evenings to paint bridges yellow and blue, painted yellow and blue hearts on the sidewalks. We got threatened with murder. Every day we saw tanks and soldiers, we studied, and from the window we could see the hits.

"Where were you these 8 years?".
How has this time passed for you, what changed in your life since the events of 2014?
What has influenced you the most during this time?
Please write in detail.

I entered the Kharkiv Academy of Arts. 
I hoped that at least I could escape the war this way...

What was February 24, 2022 for you like?
Did you believe that a full-scale offensive would begin?Where are you now? What do you do?

What do you think about your future now?

I could not believe that this war would become full-scale. I had wild flashbacks, I was very sick, I didn't eat or sleep for the first three days after the start of the war. Now in Germany, I want to continue drawing, no matter what. When I ran here from Kharkiv, I had only small notebooks and one pencil... Everything from scratch. For the first two months, I could not draw at all, it seemed to me that I had completely lost my talent... On Wednesday I drew, then on Thursday, I couldn’t any longer...
