Communications specialist Oksana helps out at the Territorial Defense Forces headquarters

Before the war, Oksana worked in the entertainment TV industry, but today she’s coordinating support for Kyiv’s defenders. She was offered a weapon, but she rejected it. She says that she can organize processes and solve problems. That is how she wants to be helpful to her city. She works 24/7 and rarely has a chance to go home and shower.

“This is my land, and you can’t show up here uninvited. We must protect what is ours. For those who don’t understand, this is an existential war – them or us,” the woman says.
