Train hostess, who rescued thousands of people, died of shrapnel on another ride. Her daughter says she wants to be like her mother
For two weeks, Nataliia Babycheva was on her duty in an evacuation train rescuing thousands of people from all over Ukraine. She was going to Lyman in Luhansk region to pick up a group of children when her train came under fire. Nataliia died of shrapnel. She was 48 years old.
A 28-year-old railway fitter Dmytro Razdorskyi was checking the serviceability of the tracks as usual at the Pokrovsk station when the explosive device detonated and killed him.
The head of the Kyiv track distance section Oleksii Samchenko died at work in the shelling. He was 45.
The repairers who rebuild damaged tracks every day to keep the railway running also die. Since the beginning of the war, Ukrainian Railways has already lost more than 50 workers on their front. It is not for nothing that railway workers wear shoulder straps. They have already evacuated more than 3.5 million people and delivered hundreds of thousands of tons of humanitarian goods.
