Ukrainians face the nuclear threat with determination and black humor |  News

KYIV, Ukraine — Dmytro Bondarenko is prepared for the worst.

She has filled the storage area under her rollaway bed and almost every other corner of her apartment in eastern Kyiv with water and non-perishable food. There are rolls of packing tape to seal the windows from radioactive fallout. It has a gas camping stove and walkie-talkies.

There’s even an AR-15 rifle and shotgun for protection, along with boxes of ammo. Fuel cans and spare tires are stashed by your washing machine in case you need to get out of town in a hurry.
