(Kyiv Post) – Nina Nikolayevna prefers to focus on the good times. When the school principal reminisces about the celebrations they used to hold at School Number 3, she is animated and passionate. There was the Saint Nicholas Day, when the teachers asked the students what they wanted most and then tried to deliver a small present to each. And there was the celebration when everyone would gather and ring a small bell to mark the end of the school year. The students here at the only Ukrainian language school in Krasnohorivka, a city of 15,000 people west of Donetsk in Ukrainian government-controlled territory, had hoped the ringing of the bell would instead signify hope for the end of the war.
