One of our next door neighbor has been called up, he is married and about forty years old, he says "how can I go, who will feed my pigs and what if his wife leaves him if he goes?" Some of the troops near stationed near here have been moved over to eastern Ukraine, as you can see in the news.
When they drove back (one of our guests and Maria had gone with him) they had to stop and buy gas so Garry bought a big bag full of semki (sunflower seeds) and Snickers bars and they left them with the guys at the Dnepropetjisk checkpoint, and then they drove through Mc Donalds in Dnepropetroesk and bought 25 cheeseburgers and gave them to the soldiers at the checkpoint in the photo around nine pm. Our guest is very good in Russian and told them that we were Canadian and wanted to thank them for being there serving Ukraine. Maria said she watched from the car and all the guys were smiling and shaking hands with them.

|Someone has turned this Lenin profile Ukrainian on the city sign|
|There are billboards that say Zaporosia is Ukraine|
|Even this old van has one, and there is one on the pole at a bridge|
|day is ending as the sun starts to set over the Dniper River as we drive over the dam|
