Against the backdrop of territorial gains by Russian forces, Oksana finds an escape in her favourite shop in Kyiv. Here, she enjoys an experience so far removed from the war that for an all too brief period she forgets the conflict.
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.
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.
