‘Soon we will return’: Sinister message from retreating Russians who turned school into military base

Residents have been left with memories of their Russian stay as the Russians leave Kherson, Ukraine.

Velyka Oleksandrivka was a peaceful market town that spent months at the frontline.

In the first week in October, the Ukrainians drove the Russians out of Kiev. There is evidence of intense fighting all around.

Its three-storey community school, which was strategically located on the Inhulets River was coveted by both sides, found itself at the center of the battle.

Volodymyr the local fire chief suggested that we take a look.

He said, “Have ya got a torch?” You will need a torch.

We found a headlamp, turned on our phones, and then we plunged into the darkness, the fire chief leading the way.

We found a chamber at the bottom of the stairs that was used to shelter bombs. The walls were covered with lewd graffiti, and the letter Z, which is the symbol for Russia’s war in Ukraine was plastered.

The letter contained the proudly written date that the Russian soldiers had taken control of the town: 26.02.

It was more than just a bomb shelter. This community school’s basement was turned into a military base.

The curtains were fitted in a dozen rooms, giving the ceiling and walls a tent-like appearance. The soldiers had hoped to stay with the subterranean compound, which gave them a homely feeling.

“Everything was taken out of people’s houses and shops. Volodymyr said that curtains, carpets, and pillows were all taken from their homes.

Do you know how many soldiers lived here?

The fire chief stated, “I think at most 200,”

Multiple kitchens and ad-hoc eating rooms were attached to our discovery. Some items in this complex looked quite luxurious.

One chamber contained bottles of silk bedding and perfumes.

“Is that where officers slept?” I was curious.

Volodymyr replied, “Probably.”

The garrison members had left quickly, but left a warning sign on the walls.

“Soon we’ll return” was the message, written in large letters and left in the darkness.

We discovered that the school had been made into a fortress by the battle for Velyka Oleksandrivka.

So that the Russians could fire their guns, the classrooms were sandbagged with castle-like slits.

Bookshelves taken from the school library were repurposed as blast walls and Putin-esque world views were echoed on the walls.

A photograph of Great Britain and Ireland was defaced by the letter Z. The bottom of the picture had been painted with the word “Russia”. It appears that the Russians didn’t want to learn English.

Volodymyr said, “It’s sad that the school was trashed.”

“Ofcourse, it’s tragic, everything is tragic. He replied, “We just want to win as quickly as possible and begin rebuilding.”

The cost of rebuilding is still high. The Ukrainian government, the World Bank, and European Union have all estimated that the recovery costs will be approximately $350bn (PS300.9bn). And the conflict continues.
