Г. Горловка

Фотография погибшей матери с ребенком на руках облетела всю планету, не оставив ни одного человека равнодушным. Во время артналета ВСУ на Горловку было много жертв, но именно эта кровавая картина заставила содрогнуться каждого, кто видел трагедию. Кристина Жук стала Горловской Мадонной.
Фотографии… фотографии… фотографии…
Каждый снимок – выражение материнского счастья.
Кристина в совершенстве знала английский. В Донецке на Евро-2012 она была востребована как прекрасный экскурсовод-переводчик. Жизнерадостная и отзывчивая, всё делала быстро, легко и с удовольствием.
Когда в семье родилась Кирочка – отражение мамы и бабушки, счастью не было границ. Жизнь закрутилась вокруг маленькой принцессы. Казалось, не расстанутся никогда.
Артналеты на Горловку сначала напугали людей, заставив всех прятаться по домам, а многих и вовсе выехать из города. Спустя некоторое время было понятно, что днем безопаснее, чем ночью. Дневная жизнь была полна солнца, тепла. Казалось, можно без опаски сходить в магазин. А дома, в ванне, расстелили теплые одеяла, окна закрыли ролетами и нашли в квартире самое безопасное место, где можно укрыться, если вдруг бомбежка.
У Кристины была возможность уехать с ребенком в Киев к сестре. Она была студенткой заочного отделения университета. Но она категорически запрещала об этом говорить.
27 июля беда ворвалась в Горловку со стороны Дзержинска, когда множество людей с детьми гуляли в скверах. На город летели снаряды, а люди метались в поисках укрытий. Одновременно взрывались десятки снарядов. Потом еще и еще. «Грады» работали по самому центру города. Мать Кристины, Наталья Николаевна, вместе с другими людьми попала в ближайшее укрытие. Здесь она пыталась найти дочь с внучкой, но поиски были тщетны. У женщины началась истерика. Кто-то попытался ее успокоить, сказав, что видели их живыми.
Разрешили выбраться из укрытия только после обстрела. Наталья бегала по городу в поисках своих родных. Кто-то сказал, что их надо искать в морге. Сердце оборвалось. Последней каплей были слова медсестры, сказавшей, что ей повезло. В чем? В том, что дети погибли?
Повезло, что лица остались целы, и она может опознать дочь с внучкой. Обычно «Грады» кромсают тела на куски…
На момент гибели Кристине было 23 года, ее дочке Кирочке 10 месяцев.
Молодую мать так и похоронили с младенцем на руках.
Хоронили девочек быстро, опасаясь очередного артналета…

Kristina Zhuk (mother)

06.09.1990 – 27.07.2014

Gorlovka

The photo of the killed mother holding her child flew over the entire planet, having left no one untouched. There were many victims after the artillery attack on Gorlovka committed by the AFU, but exactly this murderous picture made everyone, who saw the tragedy, shudder. Kristina Zhuk became the Virgin of Gorlovka.

Photos… photos… photos…

Each picture is the expression of motherly happiness.

Kristina was an active girl since childhood. Kind, cheerful, sympathetic, she always could make friends. One day, her mom accidentally mentioned that one should always favor a girl with flowers on her birthday. Kristina’s classmates heard that. What a surprise it was when on the 9th of September, on her birthday, her desk was entirely strewn with flowers.  That way, since the junior school, they originated a kind tradition to give flowers to the beautiful and smiling girl. Kristina always had mates and friends whom she trusted. After the school, she entered college of foreign languages in Gorlovka. She spoke English perfectly. With great relish, she helped with translations everyone who needed. When Euro 2012 took place in Donetsk, she was eagerly expected as a perfect guide and interpreter. Cheerful and charitable, she used to do everything quickly, easily and with pleasure.

When Kira was born to the family – a reflection of her mom and granny – joyfulness had no bounds. Life began to whirl around the little princess. It felt like they would never be separated from each other. A park became a favorite leisure area to everyone. It was situated straightly outside the apartment, and every waking hour the young and happy mother spent right there.

Artillery attacks on Gorlovka, at first, frightened people, having forced them to take cover at home, and many of them even left the city. After a while, it became clear that by day it was safer than at night. Daytime was full of sunshine and warmth. It seemed you could without any misgivings go over to the store, walk in the park with your child, enjoy the sun. Green and lush grasses were so attractable to the baby: she just had learnt to walk. But at home… At home they were talking about leaving the city as far as possible for the time of the shelling.

Kristina had the opportunity to move with her child in Kiev, to her sister. She was a student at an extension department of the university. Panics got started in the city. Railroad was blocked, taxi drivers and any carriers vehemently rejected to drive passengers in the direction of the shelling. Having packed off, they decided to get out of the dangerous area by hitchhiking.

On July 27, the disaster invaded Gorlovka from the side of Dzerzhinsk, while many people with children were walking in parks. Shells were falling on the city; people were running around, searching for a shelter. Dozens of shells were exploding in the meantime. More and more then. Artillery systems “Grad” engaged exactly the city’s center. Natalia, Kristina’s mother, together with other people got to the nearest shelter. Here she tried to find her daughter and grandchild, but the searches were futile. A blackout occurred.

The woman rushed among shadow figures of frightened people, turning every face and looking narrowly, whether there were any relatives. With that, she was loudly calling out Kristina and Kira. It was real hysterics: they were nowhere to be found. She started running to the exit, but people stopped the way, trying to explain that it was dangerous outside, they had to wait out the bombardment. Somebody tried to becalm her by saying that her girls were seen alive.

They let her get out of the shelter only after the shelling. Natalia was running around the city, searching for her relatives. Nobody was in the children’s service, she went to the department for adults. But even there she found no one. Someone told she had to search them in a mortuary. Heart sank. A nurse’s words, who said that Natalia got lucky, became the final straw. How is that? Children are dead, what are you talking about?

“Got lucky because the faces remained undamaged, so you can identify your daughter and granddaughter. Usually the “Grads” tear bodies to pieces,” the nurse answered frostily.

Kristina was 23 years old at the time of her death; her daughter Kira was 10 months of age.

The young mother was buried holding the babe in her arms, like in life.

The girls were buried fast, being afraid of another artillery strike…
