"I was scared to come to the school the first time after it was bombed. For a long time, I was just looking at it from afar. At those moments, it seemed like nothing ever happened." Sofia said. Scraping through the rubble of the classroom they last saw on February 24 – at the start of the Russian invasion -- one group of children returned to the remains of their bombarded school on Tuesday to check the condition of their school.
