In the village of Tsupovka, north of Kharkov, and only 10 kilometers from the border with Russia, a scenario that the correspondents of the newspaper El Español smashed. Completely undermined by the Russian advance and destroyed by constant bombardment, those few resisting houses have no electricity, running water or heating. And they are looking for solutions. One of them was making several portable boilers, because with winter approaching and increasingly harsh temperatures, Ukrainians are preparing for the harshest winter of their lives.

History does not allow us to forget the consequences of winter during the war, and the conditions they have to face are not a surprise to the population. Already in the summer, cities that could soon reach minus 20 degrees Celsius began to draw up survival and supply plans, according to El Español.

Winter could become “a matter of life and death” for the people of Ukraine, the UN said.

The city council of the Dergachsky district, where the village of Tsupivka is located, managed to acquire suppliers of wood-fired boilers even before the onset of a harsh winter. The Spanish newspaper adds that even in moderate temperatures, they found the Mission Kharkiv NGO, an organization responsible for distributing drugs to cancer patients who cannot continue treatment. In his work, he realized that people would die faster from cold than from disease.

Thus, they managed to get $20,000 in support from organizations. german care and International Renaissance Foundation, and began to produce boilers in a warehouse in Yarkovo. Founder Karh MissionRostilav Fillipenko, describes the project “like a very simple soviet model but which works very well🇧🇷

“Each boiler requires a hundred kilograms of iron, much more expensive than in Spain. At the moment, 50 units have been manufactured, delivered to Tsupivka-type villages, to houses that the municipality marked as vulnerable”, – explained the head of the NGO, quoted by El Español.

According to the same source, Filipenko believes that if there are more donations, they will be able to craft 160 cauldrons before extreme temperatures. Despite the explosions, many still do not want to leave their homes. This is the case of Sasha, 62, a former maintenance manager at a bombed-out school who wanted to take advantage of his retirement and was turned upside down by the war.

🇧🇷This is my land, I am here’, the sixty-year-old man told the Spanish newspaper. The scenario is unpredictable, but nevertheless, Sasha and the woman decided to spend the winter in the village, even resorting to water wells, and continue without heating for now.

Will Ukraine survive such a winter?
