Mariupol Moses: Ukrainian man took 117 people out of the besieged city on foot
Oleksii Symonov is a 44-year-old charismatic host of various events and sports competitions. He says that the most important thing is communication; it often helped him not only survive in war-torn Mariupol but also successfully take his entire shelter out of there.
“When my friends realized that I’m alive, they wrote: ‘You are not Symonov — you are Symoses. Bringing people through asphalt deserts.’ When you go quietly, how we went from Mangush, everything is fine. But when you leave the city under a shelling — it is very scary. And when you say that they are shooting far away, we can go slower, and everybody says ‘No-no-no.’ Both old and young ones. There were both 70-year-old people and 5-year-old kids,” Oleksii Symonov shared.
