Vydykh in Ukrainian language means “exhalation.” This is the state I would like to feel after the war. But now we all live on the state of inhalation. And inside there is already so much air and tension that each time we grab more, it becomes more painful. ere is no exhalation. It does not exist yet. Until the war is over. And even then, we will not be able to exhale completely, because of the memory that we will carry forever.
