Rural Hromadas of Chernihiv Region Amidst the War and Occupation: Experience of Survival and Resistance

The aim of the project is collecting oral histories from the residents of the villages of the Ichnia hromada, who lived through occupation by Russian forces in February-March, 2022. The project will explore how rural inhabitants survived, how they coexisted with the occupying authorities and military, how they resisted the enemy and what sort of outside help they received (especially from volunteers). These questions are important for posterity.
