With our book, we want to remind readers of the first days of the war. Not the reality experienced in our homes in front of the TV, but the reality experienced by Ukrainians. They woke up on February 24 2022 in a different world. In a world they knew from the stories told by their parents, and most often by their grandparents. The war has become a personal experience for all Ukrainian citizens. Although the conflict began eight years earlier when, after the victory of the Revolution of Dignity, Russia annexed Crimea with the help of ‚little green men‛ and, with the participation of special forces, created two so-called people's republics in Donetsk and Luhansk, the common experience of all Ukrainians is the aggression that began on February 24 2022, initially described by the authorities in the Kremlin with the euphemism a ‚special operation‛. Although the lies of the Kremlin's propaganda reach Poland only to a limited extent, they increasingly penetrate the narratives of those publicists and social network users who see Ukrainians as a threat.
