From a railway worker to a fitness trainer. The next story of the CloseEast112 project is about Natalya Vereshchahina. In 2015 she was lucky to save her two children and herself from a shell that hit their flat during the hostilities in her native Debaltseve. Then she was looking for an apartment, a job and …her own self. How to start a life from a scratch, to change an occupation and to become a prize winner of the Ukrainian sport dancing Championships at 38.

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.
