Anna Martyukova’s family from Kramatorsk
The city of Kramatorsk, in Donetsk Oblast, is suffering from Russian aggression for the second time. For the first time, from April 12 to July 5, 2014, the city was occupied by militants of the terrorist organization “DNR”.
In October 2014, the city became the regional center of Donetsk Region, and the leadership of the regional state administration was moved there. For eight years, Kramatorsk was a thriving industrial city, the center of heavy engineering in Donbas.
On April 4-5, 2022, the Russian Armed Forces allowed combat operations in Kramatorsk for the second time, launching a missile strike on the city. On April 8, 2022, missiles were fired at the city’s train station, killing more than 50 people and injuring 98. Currently, Kramatorsk and surrounding villages are under constant artillery fire, industrial and residential infrastructure has been significantly destroyed, and the city has no water or gas supply.
Because of the danger to life and humanitarian disaster, local residents are evacuating to safer cities in Ukraine. One such family is the family of Anna Martyukova, who moved with her two children and elderly mother to Ivano-Frankivsk region.
With the beginning of the war, Anna lost her job and today has no income. In order to support her family, Anna is searching for work in her teaching profession in the city of Yaremche and is waiting for help from the internally displaced.
In this difficult time for the family, #Hostline has provided them with direct financial assistance.
