Diana Cherednychenko, fromUkraine, chose an article from the World section headlined “Russia hammers Mykolaiv again, hitting two universities in the southern city” and wrote:
I sleep restlessly, turning from one side to another. Suddenly I wake up because of the loud noise outside. It’s a rocket flying over my house.
I live in a small occupied city in the Kherson region and hear this noise almost every day. Sometimes I can even see from my window how and from where these rockets are launched. They head to different cities, but a lot of them fell in Mykolaiv.
Mykolaiv suffers a lot because Russian soldiers have assaulted this city from the very beginning. Recently they hit two universities, a hotel, and a mall, and it’s so painful to read such news. Why our country? People don’t deserve it.
Let’s take Vinnytsia. I really thought that there is safer than in many other regions, but a missile strike proved that it is no longer safe anywhere in my country.
And it hurts to know that Russia doesn’t even bother where these rockets fall. They know that they kill many people, and they don’t care. How can they live with the knowledge that they killed people with their own hands? Why do they hit universities, malls, hotels, and other civilian infrastructure? When will this war be over?
