monobank | Universal Bank will buy a house for a 98-year-old woman who left the occupation

monobank | Universal Bank will buy a house for a 98-year-old woman who left the occupation

monobank | Universal Bank will buy a house for 98-year-old Lydia Stepanivna from Ocheretyne, Donetsk region, who impressed the whole of Ukraine with her bravery and resilience by leaving the temporarily occupied territory on foot, the bank said.

The woman, fleeing from the Russian occupiers, left the city under fire on foot and walked about 10 kilometers. Lidiya Stepanovna's house, which she built with her own hands, was destroyed by the Russians. Her family was injured. The elderly woman said that "terrible things are happening in the village".

Lidiya Stepanivna walked all day without food and water, fell down several times and, as she says, "fell asleep". She was holding on with two sticks and her "character". In the midst of the fighting, the pensioner miraculously remained alive and unharmed.

In the evening, Ukrainian soldiers saw Lidiya Stepanovna, exhausted but not broken, on the road. She was handed over to the police from the White Angel group, who took her to a shelter for evacuees. Lidiya Stepanovna is now feeling well, the National Police of Ukraine reported.

"I lived through that war and I am living through this war. I was left with nothing. But I survived with my Ukraine," the woman says.

Her daughter-in-law suggested that they go amid the danger, but on the way, the relatives got separated. Later, it turned out that the elderly woman's son and his wife had also left the occupied territories and were in the hospital. The police contacted Lidiya Stepanivna's granddaughter, who was to come to pick her up.
