In the city of Lviv in western Ukraine, hundreds of kilometers from the worst of the Russian attacks, they’re getting ready. One neighborhood includes a high rise apartment building, just on the outskirts of the city.

They’ve filled bags with sand donated by the army. They’ve posted Ukrainian flags to show their pride and allegiance. The locals don’t know if the Russian attack will come to their city, Lviv, but they’re not wasting any time to be ready. 

One 23-year-old lives in the apartment building with his two brothers, a sister and his parents. He’s helping build the barricade to keep his community safe.
