March 3 2022 – LVIV, Ukraine: A group of volunteers spent a few days digging up an abandoned bomb shelter from World War II. The shelter consists of multiple corridors, originally made by Austria and, has been abandoned ever since.
“I heard the bomb shelter was made in 1939, when first Nazis came and now we have a second wave of Nazis.”
Volunteers dug up the shelter and cleared entries for ventilation. The organizer of the group, Nicolai, said, “If we can save one life, that’s already something.”
Saveliy is a hands on volunteer who has been helping through different organizations, he added on Twitter: “Seven days of war and terror that feel like seven months, your whole life is shattered and you spend your days helping evacuate people from bombs and just trying to make yourself useful. Yeah, this is not my regular routine”
Before the war he was a digital media specialist, producing youtube channels across the world. Since the invasion he got stuck in Lviv, on accident, learning about invasion while on a train. He has been helping refugees ever since, help them house, move out of the country, assisting various volunteer groups. He has organized a set of volunteers to translate videos of combat footage and civilian videos for publishing.
I asked Saveliy how is his well being right now – “I never thought I had a capacity for this ammount of hate, this amount of joy in seeing dead Russian soldiers and their burned vehicles” – a volunteer in Lviv speaks about mental state as Russia continues to kill innocent lives in #RussianUkrainianWar.
“It all just got to me” he spoke about recent bombings, one of which killed two people in Babii Yar, a site of massacres carried out by Nazi Germany.
