"I came to this country in 2013 for as an electrical engineer with OJSC EK Vostok, helping to rebuild the countries power grid and ended up not leaving"
"I met a beautiful Chernarussian woman by the name of Iva and it was love at first sight"
"The contract with OJSC EK Vostok was for 1 year and once it had come to its end I was meant to go back to Russia but that was never going to happen"
"It was a whirlwind romance, we were living together after 6 months and married after a year, I could now stay in the country and we could be together"
"I had managed to stay on at the power plant and had a job to keep a roof over our heads, it wasn't long until the sound of our first born could be heard"
"I had never been more happy to have a family, my little girl Iiona was my life.....was my life"
"The outbreak happened and there was no where to escape, we fled with friends into the woods and we were safe for a while until they found us"
"It wasn't the infected that killed them, it was people storming the camp, they shot and killed them in front of me, the bullets sprayed through Iva and Iiona and into myself"
"I crawled to there bodies and tried to save them....I tired...I really did, I held my little girl tight and brushed her hair and watched the light in her eyes darken"
"I laid there on the ground holding her and my wife's hand, hoping it was my time to, to go with them, but it wasn't"
"I was found by a passing group that had heard the gun fire and come to help or so I thought"
