“We have found our own recipe for happiness”

In Lviv (Ukraine), on Saturday December 3, it was just 0°C and the electricity was cut for several hours a day. After numerous Russian bombardments, the Ukrainian energy system threatens to collapse at any moment. A few rare businesses have a generator, others are organized differently.
