‘I Cannot Imagine My Life Without Parents.’ A Boy’s War Diary Tells of Grief in Ukraine

SHEVCHENKOVE, Ukraine — The first entry in Tymofiy Zozulia’s war diary is March 12, days after Russian forces occupied this village east of Kyiv, the Ukrainian capital. At that time, his mother and stepfather were dead, but the 12-year-old boy had not yet discovered the truth.

“For four days, my brother Serafim and I will stay with our aunt,” Tymofiy wrote in a blue notebook. “We used to hide in their neighbor’s cellar. I didn’t count how many times we went down to the cellar but that’s okay. My mother and [stepfather] Sirozha has been stuck in Kyiv since last week”.
