Ukrainian history and literature lesson

Back in school, each of us experienced the watchful gaze of Taras Hryhorovych Shevchenko at least once. No matter whose portraits were hanging in Ukrainian classrooms, Shevchenko’s portrait was always given the place of honor in any school, gymnasium, or lyceum. He was like a timeless president of Ukrainian history and literature — elected for good.

For Whom the Bell Tolls

At 8:42 am on September 7, a teacher sends a message to a group chat: “Good morning! Missile threat. We’re at a shelter.”
The shelter is located at the nearest subway station. It means that students cannot continue their lesson until the air raid siren goes off.
