Pidhaine: Traces of Devastation

Pidhaine: Traces of Devastation

Away from the well-known places around the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, Pidhaine was particularly hard hit by the Russian attack. Local residents tell what happened.

The village of Pidhaine is only about an hour’s drive from Kyiv. During the Russian advance towards the Ukrainian capital, the place came under heavy shelling. Dozens of houses were completely destroyed in the hail of bombs, and even more have become uninhabitable since then. According to residents, around 80 percent of the settlement is damaged. A Baptist community from Kyiv is helping with the reconstruction, but the people here have not yet received much support, as a visit in early August 2022 shows.
