The image of the guarded presidential post where the top officials of the Cabinet of Ministers, the President's Office and the Verkhovna Rada gathered on 24 February 2022 reflected the nature of the entire resistance to the aggressor: sometimes poorly organised, but really deep.

Ukrainska Pravda continues its podcast series 24.02: RECONSTRUCTION and brings its readers the next fascinating episode about life in the presidential bunker in the early days of the full-scale invasion. 

Ukrainska Pravda spoke to several top officials who either lived in Facility No. 1 or visited it from time to time. Unfortunately, it was not possible to talk to the president himself. The head of his office was also unable to find time to talk to us, despite numerous requests from Ukrainska Pravda.
