Waltz on the ruins: graduation was celebrated near the destroyed school in Kharkiv
Ten graduates of school No.134 in Kharkiv danced the waltz near the ruins of their school. On February 27, 2022, Russian special forces stormed the school building. There was a battle to neutralize the invaders and save the lives of Kharkiv residents: Ukrainian defenders neutralized a platoon of about 30 Russians in the building.
A third of the students came to celebrate graduation on June 5, 2022; other students are outside Kharkiv, said graduate Hlib Opashnian.
“It’s horrible for me, especially when I saw the school being destroyed. I watched it all day. My house is 500 meters from the school. I heard gunfire and went to the second floor of my house with my father. I was scared. A fragment flew over my house and hit the neighbors’ house. The fact that the invaders died here is good news for me. And today, I am graduating, and I am happy I am graduating from school,” Hlib Opashnian said.
