GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — 19-year-old Ukrainian exchange student Anastasiia Lehova often plays the piano as a way to clear her mind from the devastating reality in her home country.
“My [home] university destroyed, hospital, theaters,” Lehova said.
Lehova is an exchange student at UW-Green Bay from Mariupol.
That’s in the southeast of Ukraine and it has been under siege by Russia for the last month.
“Until today I lose communication with my whole family, my friends, and so on because city now is in black out. And it’s super difficult because they [don’t have] any water, food, service, heating and all of this stuff,” Lehova said.
