The conflict continues in Ukraine, notably in Mariupol. The city is the subject of bitter fighting. Europe 1 collected the testimony of Polina, who left six days ago to take refuge with her mother 20 kilometers from this city in southern Ukraine. This 22-year-old mother is still struggling to tell the nightmare.

TESTIMONY

It is the 27th day of the conflict in Ukraine. Volodymyr Zelensky appealed to Vladimir Putin: he is ready to make concessions on Donbass and Crimea in exchange for peace. No return for the moment from the Kremlin. In the meantime, the conflict continues, particularly in Mariupol, the major port on the Sea of ​​Azov in the south of the country. The city is the subject of bitter fighting. It was under fire that Polina left six days ago to take refuge with her mother 20 kilometers from Mariupol. This 22-year-old mother is still struggling to tell the nightmare. Between two sighs, the memories come back.

The bomb falling five meters from the house, the walls collapsing, the windows breaking… “At that moment, I said to myself that we could die and I started to cry” , she says at the microphone of Europe 1. “In a few days, it’s my daughter’s birthday and I was afraid that she would die, and that she would not celebrate her two years.”

Streets littered with corpses

At only two years old, her daughter had to get used to living with her parents without electricity or gas, drinking melted snow, or even eating what they had been able to heat over a wood fire. The mother of the family describes streets strewn with corpses. “But the hardest thing is that we had no information, we didn’t know what was going on in the world,” she sighs.

Polina also doesn’t know if she wants to continue her escape. She fears shootings on the road, but also of never seeing her house again. In Mariupol, she says, “I don’t know a building that has remained intact.”
