    Ukraine War Diaries: WK10 - Ilyas, Seva Oksana - our lives before the war (May 23-27)

    Ukraine War Diaries: WK10 - Ilyas, Seva Oksana - our lives before the war (May 23-27)

    It’s more than three months since Russian forces invaded Ukraine, changing millions of lives, including those of Ilyas Verdiev, Oksana and Seva Goshel, forever.
    In that time, Ilyas, Oksana and Seva have shared deeply intimate insights into how war has redefined their priorities and their lives.
    But what did a typical day in their lives, and life in Ukraine, look like before the Russian invasion?
    This special episode features a Ukraine that never made the news because the country had yet to be consumed by war.
     
    BACKGROUND
     
    Ilyas is an IT specialist and married father who fled from Kyiv to Lviv shortly after the war started. His wife and two young sons are now taking refuge in Poland.
    As of May 2022, Ilyas is back living in the family apartment in Kyiv and working, in part, for the Ukrainian government on specialist projects.
     
    Oksana, 34, works in overseas education. She lives with her husband, Seva, in an apartment complex in central Kyiv and has remained in the Ukrainian capital since the war started. 
    Many of Oksana’s closest friends have left the country to begin new lives in Europe. Some may never return. She’s determined to stay.
     
    Seva, 40, is a company CEO and husband to Oksana. Before the war, he travelled across Europe for business. Now, he makes regular supply drops of medical aid and rations to Ukrainian troops in Eastern Ukraine. He’s originally from a small village near Dnipro.
     
    Ukraine War Diaries uses first-person audio, recorded on the ground in Ukraine, to give an intimate day-to-day perspective of life in a war zone.
     
    Week 10 diary entries were recorded using WhatsApp voice notes and first published on the Ukraine War Diaries podcast feed. To follow this series when it broadcasts, on weekdays, subscribe to Ukraine War Diaries wherever you get your podcasts.

    Russia invades Ukraine: Could the war spread to Moldova?

    Russia invades Ukraine: Could the war spread to Moldova?

    Transnistria is an unrecognised breakaway state in Moldova. The US has suggested there are “indications” that Russia wants to build a land bridge through Ukraine to Transnistria. But would that pull Moldova into the Russia-Ukraine conflict?

    On the Sky News Daily podcast with Kimberley Leonard, our Europe correspondent Adam Parsons, who was recently in Moldova, explains what the country and its relationship with Transnistria is like, and Viorel Barbanoua shares his story reporting from the Moldova-Ukraine border.

    Plus, Natia Seskuria, an associate fellow at security think-tank RUSI, and former Moldova ambassador to the UN Vlad Lupan, tell us about the country being pulled into the Russia-Ukraine conflict, and what it will mean if Ukraine loses.

Thought Provoking Analysis and Experiences

As the war in Ukraine evolves, this podcast gives a thought provoking analysis and shares real life experiences of what’s going on right there on the ground. Presented in a very ethical and fair way. Thankyou.

An informative listen every day

I started listening to the Sky News Daily wanting to branch out from my usual roster of news podcasts. It’s a great listen; always informative and intriguing. Not too long, although I notice just long enough when the topic warrants it. I enjoy that each day focuses on one topic, explaining the context and exploring the significance of it. I much prefer it to other daily podcasts (sorry BBC Newscast) where it feels like at Sky, the team presents the news seriously. I can go ahead with my day informed about *the* story of the day. A recommended source for your daily news.
