Alina from Borodyanka

Borodyanka, Gateway to Kyiv

Borodyanka, Ukraine. A quiet one-street town, 35 miles to the north of Kyiv, which had roughly 13,000 residents.  It is a strategic place as this narrow route provides passage to the country’s capital. This small town was bombed extensively by the Russian armed forces during the 2022 Russian Invasion of Ukraine.
