Russian retreat leads to celebration (2/2)
In recent weeks, Ukraine has reclaimed land, leaving villages and towns in ruins.
Oleksandr was captured more than once by the Russian troops and taken to what was called “the pit”.
The Pit was a basement in nearby Mali Prohody that served as a prison. But Oleksandr said he soon learned to deal with it.
He explained: “I learned this basement inside and out.
“I could only tell people apart by their voices. The ground was wet. Nothing to lie on. A few torn tires, nothing else.”
He explained that the place was crowded, wet and the food often spoiled.
“You ask them, ‘Give me some toilet paper,’ and their replies were rude, ‘I’m going to smack you in the face right now.’
