Maybe we should start finding their stories before 9 May and put them here. These heroes are so special, they still fight fascists even in old age and beyond the grave.
The veteran of the WWII Nikolay Khizhko is 88. Being a teenager Nikolay added a few years to his age and went to the front to fight against the fascists. He was a truck driver of “Katyusha”, participated in the seizure of Berlin, was awarded many orders and medals.
Since 1951, Nikolay Khizhko had lived in Donetsk, worked as a driver of a fire-engine and an ambulance, was a teacher at the automotive institute.
Today Nikolay Khizhko live together with his spouse in Kirovsk district, which was many times severely shelled by the Ukrainian punitive army.
One of the “Grade” missiles hit his household, its splinters damaged the shed and the roof of the garage. Nikolay Khizhko was saved by a miracle being only shell-shocked.
«I would have joined the fight against the fascists right now but they do not enlist me into the people’s militia due to my age. Some militiamen say: “You, old man, had been fighting enough in your time, now it’s our turn to defend our land", the veteran said.
Like all other pensioners in the region, Nikolay Khizhko does not get his pension and is below the level of poverty now, but he does not lose his optimism. «Thanks to the deputies of Novorossia parliament who help with the provisions. I’ve also received a social allowance from the republic. We will survive. The main thing is to conquer the enemy, and then everything will be fine».
The veteran believes into the victory, despite the blockade of Donbass and all hardships brought by the war, which was unleashed by the Kiev authorities.
