1:07 am
has little hope, a peaceful solution to the crisis can be found. moda was in, is this, the military's been here for 8 years, but we all feel like target new thing. of course the military in the village makes the risk greater. i'm afraid to even think about an evacuation. if i would have to leave my home suddenly with a bag of documents posted not attending the security conference in munich, suggest he doesn't want a peaceful solution. most of the families of those buried in the graveyard of left the village. people tell us the shelling in the area and the last couple of days has been the worst in years. i've been yellow so it's very frightening. i felt the fear rising up 3 me when the shelling of started with us. we been here since the beginning of the war. but where can we go and who can help us? we had about the evacuation on the other side and it's not a good sign. there is no good that will come out of this is mainly the elderly left
