Awesome images of babies born in the most difficult conditions during the war in Ukraine
A young mother says that she went through the most difficult moments in trying to find a shelter so that she could give birth to her child. The first cries of the newborn were heard even during the bombings in the capital Kiev.
Thousands of people are waiting in the underground and waiting for the latest news on social networks. A doctor says that another mother also managed to give birth in a subway station where hundreds of people took refuge.
Against the backdrop of airstrikes on Kiev, residents took refuge in the city's underground subway stations. Subways remained open to accommodate people. Those sheltered on the platforms used the Telegram application to communicate with the outside world.
The image of the war in Ukraine is shocking. Exciting images of premature babies, lined up, wrapped in blankets and towels and rocked by medical staff at a hospital in the Dnipropetrovsk region of Ukraine, have appeared in public. Babies born prematurely were moved to a bomb shelter in Ukraine.
Maternity doctors in Dnipro, a city in eastern Ukraine, are desperately trying to protect newborns.
The babies, who are wrapped and lined up next to each other, are cared for and rocked by the medical staff in the shelter that was improvised on a lower level of the hospital building in the Dnipro region in eastern Ukraine.
The anti-aircraft shelter was improvised on a lower level of the hospital building.
"It simply came to our notice then. In a bomb shelter. Can you imagine? "Dr. Denis Surkov, head of the neonatal unit at the Children's Clinic Hospital in the Dnipropetrovsk region, told the New York Times in a WhatsApp message posted on Twitter.
Babies born during the war in Ukraine
A little girl, whom her parents named Mia, was born last night in the Kiev subway.
The girl was born around 20:30 on February 25.
"Mia was born in a bunker tonight, in the midst of extremely stressful circumstances, when Kiev was under airstrikes. The baby's mother is very happy after this difficult birth, "said Hannah Hopko, chair of the Conference on Democracy in Action in Ukraine.
This young woman gave birth to a baby girl in a bomb shelter in the Kiev subway system when the Russian army launched a military operation in the city.
"In the evening, at the Gurkit in Gostomel, to the sound of sirens, my wife gave birth to a baby girl! This is such an important time for us! We are in a sloping house, in a bomb shelter, with military and operational accommodation and gentle, absolutely calm, medical care and with the people of today. Glory to Ukraine and our soldiers, "wrote a Ukrainian who became the father of a girl last night.
Also in Kiev, still under a rain of bombs, a little boy was born. Between the crumbling walls in the basement of a hospital where they were sheltered by the light of the lamp, three nurses helped the mother to give birth.
Another two babies were born under shelling. Yesterday in Kherson, under shelling, in one of the maternity hospitals equipped in a bomb shelter, two boys were born.
Babies born in difficult conditions during the war in Ukraine
These little ones are true heroes and bearers of peace on earth.
At Romanian and Moldovan customs, Ukrainian children cry for fathers left at home to defend the country
Tens of thousands of families in Ukraine are simultaneously experiencing the drama of war and partition, after Kiev authorities enacted martial law and banned men who could defend their country from crossing borders. They remained to face the enemy, but they sent their families across the border, with tears in their eyes and broken hearts. In Romania and Moldova, thousands of women have been crossing the border for almost 24 hours, alone or in groups, accompanied by elderly parents or babies and children.
The drama of a Ukrainian who embraces his daughter only a few years old, whom he sends away from the war with only his mother, has been repeated in Ukraine hundreds and thousands of times. Adult men capable of fighting can no longer leave the country after the president introduced martial law.

Reporter: What did he tell you before you left?
Nazar, Ukrainian refugee: He told me everything would be fine. And to send him pictures.
Nazar spoke with a knot in his throat about the separation of the family.
Reporter: What is your father doing now?
Nazar: He's a medical technician, but now he's helping the military if they're injured.
Reporter: Was he in the Army before?
Nazar: No, he wasn't in the military before.
He hopes to stay with his mother and sister in Poland, where they will stay with a family of friends, only temporarily.
Reporter: What would you have done instead of your father?
Nazar: I think I would have done the same.
Reporter: Would you have fought?
A young Ukrainian woman took her two-year-old daughter and came on foot to Moldova. She managed to get in on Thursday night. This morning, people with dramatic stories continued to cross the border. A woman left Ukraine with only her one-year-old daughter and mother. They crossed the border on foot. My brother and father stayed in the country. With tears in his eyes, he tells how he lived his last night in his homeland.
Reporter: Are you afraid for them?
Woman from Ukraine: Yes, sure! I was scared, there were bombings near us last night. I was scared.
Hundreds of women alone or accompanied only by children, many brought in arms, in carts or on foot, if they are older than a few years, have crossed the border into Romania and Moldova.
Reporter: Are you alone?
Woman from Ukraine: My father went to fight for the country. My son is in Europe, in Germany. I'm alone now.
Reporter: Was it hard to leave your husband there?
Woman from Ukraine: Yes, very difficult.
Reporter: You have tears in your eyes.
Woman from Ukraine: Yes, I'm crying. I hope everything will be fine. We ask you to help us, to pray for Ukraine.
A border country located at the confluence of the EU and Russia, a former Soviet republic with a population of 46 million, independent since 1991, known abroad by stereotypes such as the "granary of the former USSR", the "Chernobyl catastrophe", "Gas crisis" or "orange revolution", Ukraine is trying to build an identity.
The difficulty in finding this identity stems from the fact that Ukraine has long been fragmented between the Russian and Austro-Hungarian empires, the current borders being drawn by Joseph Stalin.

In response, Ukraine received money for disarmament, as well as security guarantees from nuclear powers (as we can see, these guarantees are not respected today).
30. The international Ukrainian anthem consists of only six lines (four in verse and two in the chorus). The remaining lines of the anthem are considered politically incorrect.

The population of today's capital of Ukraine was about 50,000 inhabitants. It took about 600 years to reach such demographic indicators again. Quite possibly, if it were not for the destruction of that time, Kyiv could have been the most developed largest city in Europe for many years.

The English journalist's name was Winston Churchill…
37. At the time of independence, there were 19.4 million pigs in Ukraine. Today, there are half as many of them - 8.3 million. Despite the reputation of a salo-eater, the average Ukrainian eats only 18 kg of pork per year. This is three times less than an ordinary German.
38. In Ukraine, near Nikopol, on a spit near the river. Lapinki, on one of the branches of the Dnieper, you can see, or rather hear a phenomenon that is rare in the world - singing sands. The "singing" of these, perhaps, the strangest sands appears after rain, when the top layer sticks together and forms a fragile crust. Walking along it, you can hear sounds similar to the whistling of air released from a car chamber.
39. In the town of Berdychiv (Zhytomyr region) in the church of St. Barbara on March 14, 1850, the local beauty Evelina Ganskaya was married to Honore de Balzac. Frederic Chopin lived in the same town for a long time, who, in addition to writing music, also supervised the restoration of the local organ.
40. It would be possible to collect a dictionary of Ukrainian surnames, distorted in the course of Russification by Russian officials. So, the Ukrainian clan Chekhov in the 19th century became Chekhov for some reason. Chekhov's grandfather was still a Czech. Anton Pavlovich himself wrote that his grandfather was a Ukrainian. Quite funny, the Deineks turned into Denikins. Cossacks Rozuma became Razumovsky, Chaikas become Tchaikovsky. The grandfather of Pyotr Tchaikovsky, the great composer - Pyotr Chaika - graduated from the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, and as a physician, the Russian government sent him as a head physician to Vyatka.
41. Probably, the Ukrainian atmosphere in the Tchaikovsky family was preserved much better than that of the Chekhovs, because from the age of 24, the future composer lived in Ukraine almost every year for several months, where he wrote more than 30 works, including the opera Blacksmith Vakula (Cherevichki ”), “Mazepa”, song-romance “Cherry Garden of Haiti”, duet “On the Novgorod near the Ford” to the words of T. Shevchenko. In the cruel times of the empire's offensive against the Ukrainian language, he sought the production of "Taras Bulba" by N. Lysenko (the famous Ukrainian composer), used many Ukrainian folk songs in his works.
42. The great writer Fyodor Dostoevsky was Ukrainian by origin, because the Dostoevsky family came from the village of Dostoev near Pinsk (Ukrainian-Belarusian border), so Belarusians can also consider him their fellow countryman. One of the Dostoevskys becomes a hieromonk of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra and in 1647 takes part in the election of the next metropolitan. It is interesting that among the Dostoevskys who lived in Podolia, most of all were representatives of the clergy. Andrei Dostoevsky was a priest of the Ukrainian Uniate Church.
43. He was the grandfather of the writer F. Dostoevsky. Andrei's son quarreled with his father and brother and went to Moscow. His name was Mikhail, and as a memory of his family and Ukraine, he took with him, preserved and passed on to his sons his own Ukrainian poems. The daughter of Fyodor Mikhailovich recalls: "... poetic abilities were already in the Ukrainian family of my father, and were not given only through my Muscovite mother, as Dostoevsky's literary friends suggest." It is a pity that F. Dostoevsky did not join the defense of Ukraine.
44. This, in principle, cannot be said about V. Mayakovsky. The poet sharply criticized the “Muscovites”: “Comrade Muscovite, don’t joke about Ukraine.” He also reminded that Russians from the history of Ukraine know only Shevchenko, Taras Bulba, borscht and lard (“Russians have a shallow thickness of knowledge”).
45. By the way, he wrote about himself: "I am a Cossack from my grandfather, on the other - a Sich." Researchers point out that the Ukrainian clans of Mayakovsky went, probably, from those Cossacks who stood guard over the barrows, at the lighthouses that were set on fire during the Tatar attacks.
46. Unfortunately, the Ukrainians of Ripa turned into Repins. Although Ilya Repin, who was born in the Kharkiv region, still retained his sense of belonging to the Ukrainians and painted himself as a Cossack leaning on a cannon. “It's time to think about the Ukrainian style in art,” the artist noted. But he not only spoke, but also created many works on Ukrainian themes, for example, “The Cossacks write a letter to the Turkish Sultan” - he wrote two versions of this picture.
47. In 1931, there were more Ukrainians in the USSR than Russians. In six years, 55 million disappeared ... This figure is indicated in the book "At the Great Construction Site", published in 1931 in Leningrad. The same data are presented in the first Soviet encyclopedia of 1926. Neither this encyclopedia nor the book is available in any library in Ukraine. We managed to find "At the Great Construction Site" in Moscow.
48. The figures of 81 million are clearly visible in these copies. It should be noted that the population of Ukrainian Galicia, which was part of Poland, was not taken into account here. Already the next census of 1937 indicates that only 26 million Ukrainians remained in the USSR. Where did all the rest go? Knowing such figures, the repressions of the 1930s seem even more terrible.
49. Freedom Square in Kharkov is the largest square in Europe.
50. The longest embankment in Europe is located in Dnepropetrovsk. Its length is 30 km.
Each new year represents a new beginning. Around the night between the years, we think about what we want the new year to bring, we make wishes, we make plans and we respect different superstitions in order to have luck in the beginning year. It is as common as it is convenient to believe that the luck of the new year is primarily due to fate, and thus we tend to minimize our own responsibility and the importance of our contribution to our own well-being.
But what if, at the turn of the year, we made a list of things we want to learn next year? Maybe we want to learn a foreign language, maybe we want to try a new sport, maybe we want to learn a new skill, use a new device, get a driver's license or maybe we want to learn to paint. We all have such desires, but we seldom fulfill them.
1.Learning law for humanity
Learning is necessary up to a point. When we are little, we always learn things about the reality around us that help us survive and adapt. Then we go to school, where we are forced to learn various subjects, some of which we like, some less. Then we go to college, where we specialize in one field. We go to work, where we learn to do our job. After a while, however, learning is no longer compulsory, it becomes optional. Nothing presses us anymore, the only motivation is given by our desire to know things. And this is the moment when the excuses appear: I don't feel like it now, I want to relax, I've learned enough, I'm too old to learn anymore, etc.
These excuses have long-term negative consequences. The brain, like any other muscle, atrophies in the absence of exercise. For this reason, thinking becomes rigid and we tend to suffer from functional fixation. In other words, we are used to doing things the same way all the time, we feel uncomfortable when we are faced with a new situation and we lose the ability to think "outside the box" and find creative solutions to the problems we face. The more time we spend learning nothing new, the more useless it seems to us to try.
5.The 9 Nanas
6.Money doesn’t grow on tree
First of all, if our brain is always trained to learn new things, it will be easier for us to learn skills, because we will be able to relate them to what we already know. And we will know more and more. This will allow us to deal with more and more situations. Although we may not see the immediate benefit of learning a certain thing in the long run, we will certainly feel the benefits.
By always learning, we keep our spirit young and will process information very quickly, because we will have a complex system in which to integrate it. Last but not least, we will have an increased sense of self-efficacy, which will help us to feel good about ourselves, to know what we are capable of and to be confident that we can succeed in what we set out to do.

Best Free Outdoor Activities For Kids This Summer
Let's fly a kite
Entertainment that causes a lot of delight, despite its simplicity. Children are mesmerized when the kite soars into the sky and swims through it, as if alive. Today you can buy a snake in a store, or you can even make it yourself: instructions are easy to find on the Internet.
Summer active games
Get badminton, frisbees, rubber bands from our Soviet childhood, jump ropes, grasshoppers... Have you noticed that children have stopped playing hopscotch? We need to fix this urgently! Have your child bring a set of crayons out into the yard: after the kids jump into the classrooms, they will draw a huge picture on the pavement.
Arranging a water battle
This fun is simply irreplaceable, but you need to prepare well for it, and above all, adults. Ideally, a water battle should be organized in a company, for example, at some kind of children's party. The company is divided into 2 teams, paper circles of two colors are cut out and glued to the back and stomach of each player. Whose circles get wet, he is out of the game. The survivor team wins.
Experimenting in the garden
If you have a house adjoining territory (even at the entrance, for example), then your child is lucky. You can give him a garden bed or part of it so that he can grow something of his own there: green peas or garden daisies. Get a set of a young gardener: a shovel, a rake, galoshes ... And by the way, in addition to gardening, let the child landscape his site: for example, plant flowers in old dishes, use his old toys or natural materials to decorate.
Hide the treasure
Hide the "jewel chest" in a secret place and draw a quest map so that the child can solve puzzles on the way to the treasure. And don’t forget the “secrets under the glass” too! Teach your child to make such caches - there will be something to remember!
Gathering a collection or herbarium
You can collect anything: shells, unusual stones, cones, herbarium. Read more about how to create a herbarium.
Building a sand castle and painting on pebbles
A southern kid's summer is certainly not complete without the beach. But even here you need to show your imagination: when swimming and sunbathing are already bored, you need to find something else to do. Grab your paints and paint the pebbles on the beach, lots of ideas for this activity.
Catching insects and releasing them
Get a landing net and your child's summer will sparkle with new colors: he will feel like an entomologist. You just need to explain to him that you shouldn’t kill insects unnecessarily: it’s better to catch it in a net, study it carefully.
Creative Ideas To Keep Kids Busy All Summer Long
Making homemade lemonade
The abundance of southern fruits allows us to easily arrange a lemonade day at home, and we advise you to appoint a child as a chef. Citrus fruits and watermelon are ideal for making lemonade. The easiest recipe: 1 cup lemon juice, 1 cup sugar and 6 cups cold water. You can also add ice and decorate each glass with a straw, umbrella and berries.
Keeping a diary of observations
Let the child choose a beautiful notebook for notes and an object of observation. As a rule, children like to watch insects or birds. In the diary, the child can set his own rules: what to write there, what to draw, how to paste clippings and photos. Most importantly, you need to convince him that real scientists take notes every day.
Cooking homemade ice cream
If the idea with lemonade is a success, you can go further: make homemade ice cream. To do this, you will need ice cream molds, as well as fruit and / or cream. To prepare fruit ice, it is enough to pour fruit or berry juice squeezed out with your own hand into the molds. And if you want to make creamy milk, then here is the recipe: beat the heavy cold cream well with vanilla sugar, then add condensed milk and beat again until airy. We lay out in molds and freeze.''
Write a book or make a movie
Older children can be given an interesting task - to write a book about their summer adventures by the end of the holidays. Allow the child to fantasize and think out stories - this will turn out to be the most interesting. According to the same scenario, you can make a movie, or you can - according to your favorite book, such as Tom Sawyer!
Putting on a performance
Prepare the script, distribute the roles, collect the old bedspreads (curtain), props for the performance and voila - the children in the yard have a completely new wave of emotions and a real adventure. And then create posters and invite the whole house to watch the courtyard performance.
Making a wreath and natural beads
This is fun for girls. Teach your daughter to weave a magnificent field wreath. It's easy: choose bright flowers and green plants with long stems. Each new flower, as it were, is tied around an existing “braid”, alternating flowers with greens.
To make ethnic beads, you need to collect berries: mountain ash, hawthorn, wild rose, and you can also take fresh corn grains. String them on a string and hang them to dry in the sun. In a few days you will have bright natural beads.
