A grenade from the Armed Forces of Ukraine hit the car directly, killing everyone except Tolya. Lisa’s classmate called the girl’s mother and told a disturbing story. No matter how many calls the woman made to her relatives, they did not pick up the phones.

Later, Tolik’s phone turned on. His sister and father died on the spot. Tolya received numerous wounds from shrapnel. While he was waiting for his mother, a Ukrainian military man approached him, who threw a grenade into their car and put a machine gun to the guy’s head.
