Vladimir: "I came to Poland with my brother and my brother-in-law a month ago to study to become a hauler. The education is over, we had to go home in normal way, now we go because we need to go. All our relatives asked us not to return. They said we have a perfect chance to stay alive. But how can you, if you receive such news from your land every day? You can hide from the war, but die in a car accident. We all walk under God. We need to help with prayer and deeds."
Dzmitry: "We could stay in Poland or Germany, but we just need to go to our relatives, because everyone is there. I won't fight and take up arms. I don't want to kill. As a family, we believe in God, and he says, "Whoever takes the sword will die." But if I need any help, I will do everything in my power to defend. Maybe I can help as a driver, a nurse or even a cook. We are going to our homeland. How to live later if you are safe here and someone can die? What will the life be like if that happens? If we die, then all together."
Vitaly: "We were looking for a job with the opportunity to be always able to return to our homeland, with the opportunity to come and go. The war suddenly caught us while studying there. At home there's a family, children. How can we leave them alone? It's not even patriotic."
