Becaouse of recent events in Eastern regions he had to move to Uzhgorod.
'Here we have found many people who treat us really well and who were ready to help. The city itself is really beautiful. Especially I like ancient houses and stone-block pavements. It was pleasant surprise that many people can easily speak English', Kishor says.

He likes city monuments: Uzhgorod Castle, Folk Architecture and Life Museum, 'When I came to the observation platform of Uzhgorod castle, amazing mountain scenery made me freeze in fascination for 20 seconds! And one of the Museum rooms with traditional Ukrainian items made me think - I want to be Ukrainian!'
