From Ukrainian frontline to vitrines of European stores. Women's trousers, skirts and dresses are made at the clothes factory in Popasna, Luhansk region and then - exported to France. The factory was opened by a local resident Olena Buryan, who previously worked as gas station operator. The CloseEast112 project continues.

As part of the project CloseEast112, we go on telling about people who make Donbass better for fellow countrymen and closer to the whole country. This film is presented by the 112 Ukraine TV channel in the framework of the project with the Ukraine Confidence Building Initiative (UCBI II), funded by the US agency of international development USAID. It is devoted to the people of Donbas region who have managed to change their lives in spite of the war unfolding in Eastern Ukraine.
