"Stanytsia Luhanska. The disengagement of troops has not commenced here because of regular clashes - today our positions came under fire again. Local patriots categorically oppose such a disengagement. For many civilians here, the words like "patriotism" and "Ukraine" are not just empty lexemes but what they risk their lives for. Stanytsia still has many supporters of Pax Russica, who are closely connected with the Russian Federation over their work. The town was occupied for several months [in 2014 - ed.] with the Russian border being just a few kilometers away," he wrote.
"Stanytsia Luhanska is not just a spot on the map. Our people live there. I was impressed by the teachers and pupils of the Vilkhivska secondary school. By their Plast [Ukraine's largest Scouting organization - ed.] unit. By Iryna Rieznik, the principal, who personally supports the Plast movement and patriotic education. Together with the command of National Guard's rapid reaction brigade, Iryna organized a meeting of pupils and fighters (pictured) as the school educates genuine defenders of the motherland," the journalist added.
"Here, a few kilometers from the front line, such meetings are not about pomp, it's a daily life. Unfortunately, only a few educational institutions can boast this kind of pro-Ukrainian attitude - many anxiously look at neighboring Luhansk. This fact commands even more respect towards the school's teachers, pupils and their parents. The heart of Ukraine is beating in these walls," Butusov concluded.
