Anatoliy Hryhorovych, 78 years old and half a hundred of his birds. Already in the first days of the full-scale war the man’s house was deprived of heating, light and windows. When in March the frost became more severe, even the aquarium froze in the man’s apartment.

“I do not know exactly how many canaries I have. Today I cleaned the cell, one flew out. And from two days ago, the birds hatched. This means that life continues! Today I cooked eggs for them, because the nestlings need eggs. I tear the grass for them. I love it! I love it since childhood,” the man says and draws on a cigarette.

The man receives products from volunteers, like all those who were deprived in Pivnichna Saltivka. There are no stores nearby, public transport does not go there, and the pensioner cannot buy food for his animals. Anatoliy Grigorovich explains that he has enough of everything, he takes care of the birds.
