Two teenagers train on throwing Molotov cocktails and defend the local shelter

In this photo, two teenagers – two Igors. They are 15 and 16 years old and live in Zhytomyr, a city under fire from Russian occupiers.

Since the start of the full-scale war, the boys have been on duty at one of the local shelters every day. They clean up there, brew tea for people, and keep order. They are ready to defend their land. To do this, they train on accurately throwing Molotov cocktails into enemy tanks.
