That day, the first Russian rockets attacked a double layer, near the house of it. Nisak said he felt like a thunder.

They have packed their bags in a hurry, leaving the relatives in the west of Ukraine. I thought it would end after two weeks, but it only became worse, Nisak said.

The Hubbans of Nesteruks and Kovals, who are friends, suggest that this is left together.

They went to Slovak and then Poland. When Petersen is near them at the train station, they are almost unbearable.

At that time, Krakow refugees had no more space. I did not have a separate apartment, but I have prepared a room in my apartment, my Afghan neighbors have said Peterson from the Afghan neighbors of August last August.

In the end, her friend currently lives in Germany, she agrees that these two women and her children can stay next to Peters. I work in an hour, so I have no problem with people from different environments and culture.

I like to travel, I have been in many countries, I know that people from all over the world are helpful and friendly, Peters said, have had African students to escape from Ukraine.

When I can not find the hotel and the locals, I will have foreign countries that have abroad to stay at home. I do not want children to sleep at the train station.

When you talk to people, you understand, it is easier to accept your home. Peterssens Twins and Yulias daughters are seven.

Although the barriers of the language play and communicate together. There is not much cultural difference between them. But some things in Poland make people.

I do not understand why everyone wants to help us, border guards and volunteers from the train station.

She said that people helped us bring the bags, bring food, diapers, for children. I want to know what I will do in this case.

Will I help people need people, are you accepting their homes? We have been helped by strangers, but how do you know we are good people? For me, this is a miracle, people are so confident here.

I don’t think there is no reason. Volunteers show me, I can use it. Now I think it’s time to start doing business, and I’m not afraid of doing it. Plawowska said, I hope you act quickly again.

The only complaint of it is for the central government, she can do more. Although she will soon begin to accept the support of the State to house refugees, the additional cost of electricity and natural gas will affect her family budget.

Christina, nine, when she saw that they tried to exchange hryvnias, a person on the street gave them 100 zloty Bill ( 24 24 24 ) on the street, and now in history.

I started to cry. Bazhok said: God bless Poland Poland. Wojtasiewicz said his experience: I used to sit at home with the news, it gave me a bad impact.
