Despite the occupation, Lyudmila Vasylivna kept the Ukrainian flag and weapons with her. The Center of National Resistance spoke with the heroine, who became one of the symbols of resistance to the occupation in Kherson.
November 21 is the Day of Dignity and Freedom in Ukraine. Dignity and freedom are what we have and have never had an enemy. Even under occupation we remain free.
The heroine of this video saved the Ukrainian flag, despite the risks to her life, by hiding it in a safe. But it wasn’t just the flag that was hidden in her backyard. The woman also kept an air pistol and binoculars.
All these things belong to Lyudmila Vasylivna’s son, but the woman was afraid that during the probable searches, the occupiers would find a flag, a pistol and binoculars – after which she would be repressed.
Note that the story of Lyudmila Vasylivna ¬ is a unique example of bravery and patriotism in an occupied city.
The National Resistance Center is launching a short series of videos dedicated to the heroes of the resistance, because right now a new heroic epic of the Ukrainian people is being formed before our eyes. None of the main characters of this epic will be forgotten!
