Life in Ukraines Carpathian Mountains

Life in Ukraines Carpathian Mountains

As Putin's war of evil continues in Ukraine some people are able to escape to the Carpathian Mountains.

Praise God for this blessing!

The video and article below gives us a glimpse into their lives.

Pray for Ukraine!!

Living your whole life alone in a mountain hut is far from civilization. Hard life in wild forests.


"In this film, you will see my grandfather, who was born in this house and lives to this day. This place is "Wild forests of the Carpathians" ethnic group "Boyka" Usually, few people except my grandfather live far from civilization now. My grandfather goes down to the village twice a year, he spends all the time away from civilization in his forest house, which was built by his grandfathers. In those forest houses, as you saw, there is no electricity, the only connection to civilization is an old battery-operated radio. From time to time I visit my grandfather, I help with the household. My grandfather has a goat and a bull. When the bull grows up, he sells it and lives on the money from the sale. Thank you all for viewing and comments, the film was shot on real events in the Carpathians, Ukraine. Thank you in advance for your subscription, my grandfather and I are happy to have a new audience. My grandfather asks about the comments and who is watching it from which countries, so I will be glad to pass on your feedback to him." from video introduction



In Ukraine’s Carpathian Mountains, tens of thousands find refuge from war


KRYVORIVNYA, Ukraine — There is almost no place in Ukraine that feels truly safe. Not underground bunkers. Not cities distant from daily bombardment. Certainly not military bases. Not even a relative’s house. About the only place of true peace and refuge in this country these days is the one nature built — the high hills of the eastern Carpathians, thick with stands of silver fir dusted with fresh snow, dotted with villages now ballooning in size as tens of thousands flee here.


“As soon as we entered the mountains we felt safe,” said Miroslava Patsyadi, a young mother and school librarian from the heavily shelled city of Bila Tserkva, south of Kyiv. “It’s a subconscious thing. My daughter can sleep again. Here, we saw that life will go on.”
