On Tuesday, June 17, pro-Russian terrorists in Lysychansk, in the Luhansk Oblast, staged a “shakedown” in the Lysychansk school #8 when several armed men came looking for the Ukrainian language teacher Antonina Havrylyuk.
Fortunately, the teacher was not at school at the time. After being warned of possible kidnapping, she took shelter with friends, writes the newspaper Today in Severedonetsk. According to the newspaper, Havrylyuk has left the terrorist occupied area and is now safe.
Havrylyuk has been highly valued by the parents of her students. The class where she teaches has been renovated by the parents and is one of the best in the school. She is also an active supporter of a united Ukraine, the newspaper reports.
