A Family’s Secret Life in Russian-Occupied Ukraine

Russia is scrambling to pull its military personnel and citizens out of the city of Kherson ahead of a Ukrainian counter-offensive. This comes as no surprise to the people of Kherson, who have been living in fear ever since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014.

One family, who wished to remain anonymous, has been documenting their secret life under Russian occupation. They have released a series of videos that show the everyday reality of life in Kherson. The videos are capturing international attention and giving a rare glimpse into the lives of ordinary Ukrainians.

The family’s videos show Russian soldiers patrolling the streets and occupying buildings. There is a heavy military presence in Kherson, and the people are living in fear of being arrested or killed. The videos also show the family going about their everyday lives, despite the dangers that they face. They go to school and work, they cook and clean, and they care for their children.

It is heart-wrenching to see this young family living in such conditions. They should be enjoying their lives, but instead they are living in constant fear. Nobody should have to live through anything like that, especially a beautiful young child like that. I sincerely hope that this family, and every family in Ukraine, are safe.
