Dnipro, Ukraine

Julia, a second-time refugee, in the kitchens at a Christian church called Door to Heaven where she has found shelter. Her first experience of being a refugee was in when the separatists occupied her home city of Luhansk in 2014. She didn't agree with the forced separation from Ukraine so she moved to Berdyansk, a city controlled by Ukraine. When Russia began Putin's invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022, she says she didn't think she would leave the Berdyansk. "Ukrainian soldiers left the city to Mariupol, Russian forces arrived during the night, and took over the city. They took down the Ukrainian flag from the city hall. We demonstrated everyday against the invasion", she says. Eventually Yulia left the city, when there were no more products in shops, when there was nothing to eat and there was no gas to heat apartments. For now she is in Dnipro.Â
