While staying in Mariupol during the blockade, Viacheslav lived in a cellar hiding from the shelling and gathered evidence of Russian war crimes. After he fell ill, he made the difficult decision to leave the city, taking a flash drive that contained images and videos of the devastated Mariupol with him.
