"The war took everything from me: youth, home and the best father in the world..."
It's painful when your dearest and closest one goes to war. It is in order to protect you and the country. It is the responsibility for the future of his child. And the worst thing is to realize that you can never see each other again. That's what happened in the life of the family of Volodymyr Bilyk, a Ukrainian soldier of Volunteer Battalion Aydar.
"Heroes do not die! My dad for me will always be alive! "- first words which the daughter of the deceased Ukrainian soldier Alina Bilyk says talking about her dad. Bilyks family lived in Luhansk, east Ukraine. The girl loved her father because he was her best friend, a reliable and courageous, sympathetic, who would always fulfil all whims, would always help, give an advice and teach. "We often went for strolls in the forest. My father taught me to shoot, he liked to hunt, he had a whole collection of weapons. He taught how to defend myself and how to conduct dialogues as at school happened I often got insulted. Thanks to my dad, I was able to learn almost everything, and now I want only one thing : may my father return!" sadly says Alina.
At the time when the fight in Luhansk started, Alina Bilyk was 14 years old. The girl saw the Russian military equipment, militant groups of neighbours and hired Russians who came to earn money.
To stay in Luhansk where there were constant attacks was unsafe for the family, so Alina with her mother went to Belarus, and later returned to Ukraine. "The hardest all this time was the absence of connection with father. His phone was "out of range", says Ukrainian soldier’s daughter. Now Alina and her mother live near Kyiv in a rented flat. Mother works and Alina goes to school. Next year she enters a university. She wants to be a notary or a judge, but most of all she wants her dad back.
The fate of Volodymyr Bilyk is currently unknown. He went missing in July, 2014 in one of the first battles of Aydar in the suburbs of Luhansk. And Alina continues to believe that her father will return. The documents for the statues of the family of a deceased soldier are in the final stages. Meanwhile, the daughter of the Ukrainians soldier receives only 884 UAH (about 32 USD) from the state as a migrant.
Let's help Alina Bilyk solve her problems, because the money provided by the state is just enough to pay the rent and utilities, but still she need to buy clothes and food.
