Repair

Thousands of Kharkiv residents gathered to dismantle the rubble and repair surviving buildings


Kharkiv is bombarded daily and residents continue to rebuild their city.

Thousands of people united to clean up the consequences of the Russian bombardments in Kharkiv. They clean up rubble, repair windows and work every day from morning to night, according to TSN.

Nearly 2,000 students studied in one of the city’s schools, which has now turned into a pile of bricks. The Russians hit here with three missiles. “This part, which is completely destroyed, is a dining room, by the way, with modern equipment, and there was a meeting room above it. And last week we saw shiny stage costumes among the bricks,” said the director of the establishment.

Dozens of volunteers came to dismantle the ruins of the school, including teachers and parents of schoolchildren and simply benevolent inhabitants.

It’s no longer that it’s not my region, it’s not my school, I didn’t study here. No, it doesn’t work now

the people say

Volunteers dismantle the rubble and search for surviving objects. And from this pile, the least damaged bricks are chosen, which can be used to build a new building.

Remove the consequences of Russian bombings in other educational institutions. At another school, nearly 200 windows were blown out by the shock wave. However, despite this, people hide here in the basement during air raids. So the volunteers cover the windows with plywood to turn on the heating when it’s cold.

Volunteers have posted announcements on social media so that those who wish can join in the restoration of their hometown. “It’s thousands. We talk about this number of people, but it is increasing because now more people feel the need to devote time and help rebuild their country,” explains Elena Lupova, head of the NGO Building Ukraine Together.

Everyone who came learned how to take measurements, saw plywood and close windows.

Every day, those who wish to find themselves in a new establishment and work from morning to evening. In addition to schools, residential buildings are also being renovated. We also plan to tidy up the basements so that the people of Kharkiv have more places to hide.
