"I miss him so much. I always wish I saw 'Oleh's cell' on my phone's display as I receive a call.
"All I want is to see Oleh at large, hug my son. I'd love to live to see it.
"It is too hard for me to visit him in Yakutia. I'm afraid I will not survive such a journey [approx. 5,500 kilometers - ed.]. Oleh opposes it as well: it's too far, too expensive, and it will be hard to leave after a three-day visit... What other choices do I have? Re-read his letters I receive so seldom and keep hope alive that Ukraine will not forget about Oleh. He very much hopes that his country will not leave him alone," Sentsova said.
