A worldwide pandemic affecting millions of people has caused hundreds of thousands of deaths. The contagious virus known as COVID-19 causes it. It caused a huge panic and people everywhere were stockpiling essentials like hand sanitizers, toilet paper and even flour. Store shelves were literally empty until limitations on purchases were more controlled.
What happens when you combine an interest in film and writing together with focus and determination?

1) EZREKLAMA: Greetings Borys. Thank you for meeting with us. Could you share with our readers something about yourself, and maybe things you enjoy doing in your free time?
1) BORYS: Good day. Certainly. My name is Borys Lehkar. I come from the city of Drohobych in the Lviv region of Ukraine. After graduating from school, I entered the Lviv Technical College of Rural Construction in the Department of Civil and Industrial Construction. My education, which was the second half of the 1980s, came at a time when the movement for democratic change and protests against the then Soviet system was gaining momentum in Lviv. I tried not to miss any demonstrations. We hung flags, glued posters, and were on duty at the Klumba (flowerbed) now a monument to Shevchenko in Lviv. It was then that I was lucky enough to meet Chornovil, the Horeniv brothers, Helia, the Kalintsy couple, and other dissidents of the time. Lviv, where I had to live a significant part of my life, remains my favorite city to this day. After graduating from college, I started working as a construction foreman, and a few months later I was drafted into the army.
By the way, the years of my service (1990-1992) coincided with the collapse of the Soviet Empire and Ukraine's independence. It so happened that I took two oaths. The first, to the USSR, and the second to Independent Ukraine. I am especially proud that I had the honor to serve at the time when the Ukrainian Army was born. After demobilization I went to work in business, and then I worked for a construction company as a foreman.
