The other day I went to Krutaya Balka, a frontline village N of Donetsk and just outside of Yasinovataya. Around 15 people (mostly elderly) remain in this village, under Ukrainian shelling & heavy machine gun fire.
I spoke with those I could find at home while I was there. All told me they were constantly being assaulted by Ukrainian forces) by heavy machine gun fire and shelling. The machine gun fire not only punctures the walls but also can set fire to the roof, thus the whole house.
All said they had no where to go, so they stay, living in hell in an area otherwise quite lovely. Same as I heard in Zaitsevo, further north in the Donetsk People’s Republic.
The man in the photo (walking down the lane) allowed me to interview & film him, but without including his face because every day he has to walk across an extremely dangerous area to reach his home. He said he had already been shot in the leg by a Ukrainian sniper crossing in that area. But what to do? Where to go? So he daily faces death, walking without any sort of body armour.
This is the Ukraine our bought and sold media won’t tell you about, a neo-Nazi state that can slaughter and maim civilians in the DPR, and destroy their homes, at will without any repercussions at all. Just like Israel. The parallels are many.
Canada is not only politically backing Ukraine, but is on the ground training Ukrainian forces.These forces are destroying villages in the DPR, with Canada’s complicity.

A young woman, Natasha from St Petersburg is on her way to the Don-Bass to help reveal the carnage caused by the Ukrainian govt …she is there now likely, she is of Islamic persuasion, though that doesn’t matter.
Natasha has been doing her own Instagram program near daily mostly of life in SPB and occasionally Moscou.
Not surprising, some of her posters know about you and your endeavors.
~ Where will these old folks go? Leaving is a wish not an option. LIke recalling where millions of Hiroshima and Nagasakians would go cuz dey got de leaflets to leave …where ya gonna go? Up in Smoke if someone doesn’t stop the carnage.
For sure my daughter and my self made tour of Moscou and SPB were awesome, at my old age i’d return to SPB, Moscou in a heartbeat.
We can hope the recent fallout of Biden/Trump will also pour fire on Susan Powers and the Obama-crypto-Fascists league of scum RE the Ukraine.
