75 year old woman speaks of Ukraine’s bombing of her apartment in June, destroying it.
This was in a completely civilian district where around the same time, still more Ukrainian-fired Grad missiles targeted a school, killing employees inside. Only because children were distance-learning, were they spared.
I rented a small apartment in the same district my last visits here. It was an insight into how Ukraine’s terrorism reaches everywhere, including an otherwise quiet Donetsk neighbourhood.
[Related: Due to Ukraine’s attacks on water infrastructure, Donetsk districts have endured water rationing, then, for the past many months such shortages that some districts only get water every 3 days. When I stayed in this neighbourhood, I never had water, period. Like others, I would go to points where water was being distributed by Emergency Services, fill my 5 litre jugs, and be extremely careful with my water use.
There are so many layers to Ukraine’s terrorism.]
