Ala Vasilevna stands in beside two doors. The blue one was burned when her house was hit by shell and the plain one was bought to replace it. Ala was hiding with her husband Victor in their cellar during shelling which continued from the beginning of April to beginning of July 2014. Their house was hit and roof was destroyed as well as their garage, car and one of their cows burned to death. Sloviansk is currently under Ukrainian control. She says 'We received roofing sheets from an NGO. But we are too old to repair our destroyed house. So we paid for a labour with the money we have saved for our funerals. Now, we will have to live at least until one hundred so we could save this money again.'
