The war in the Donbass hit a huge number of Ukrainians. The choice towards Ukraine meant to lose everything, to burn the bridges, to leave their homes, graves of their ancestors, to move to the unknown. Since the Second World War, in Europe hasn’t been such movement of citizens. Today, the number of settlers reaches 2,000,000. Many residents of Donetsk, leaving their homes, took the key to their apartment as a memento. I have this key too. When I take it in my hand, I feel the usual weight. I cannot remember which way the lock opens. Although sure, the hand will automatically turn the key in the right direction. Click — the door will open. And I am at home…
