From a night conversation on Hrushevsky Street, a man, age 36, Master of Sport in boxing:  “I have money, an apartment, a car… I have everything, but I’m here.  Why am I here.  I am here because they killed people.  If they hadn’t killed people, I wouldn’t have given a fuck.  Now I can’t say anymore that I don’t care… I’ve been here for 15 days, I’m not coming home, they’re looking for me, and that’s dangerous.  A friend told me that I’m on a list and he won’t be able to get me out of there, whatever connections he has.  I will be here until we win…. we were unarmed, now, I won’t deny it, we’re not empty-handed, but that’s necessary – when they started using weapons against us we were in the palm of their hands, like children, defenseless, and look how it ended:  our guys will never see the sun again.  I want those bitches punished, I am afraid of nothing anymore and I’m ready to give my life for Ukraine.  I can’t sit at home, I can’t go to work, I can’t sleep and eat, I won’t take anymore of that.  So I went out, and I’m going to be here until the end.”
