Faina Vladimirovna’s message to children of the West is:
Hi! My name is Faina Savenkova. I am a playwright and writer. I live in Luhansk and hardly differ from you. Just like you, I love going to school, spending time with my friends, and growing up as an ordinary child. But it just so happens that I've been living in the war for seven years now. Yes, now they don't shoot as often as they used to, so I can create my own works, play sports and study.
