Lately, Russian-backed rebels in the city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine successfully overran the Donetsk airport. Until this point, Ukrainian forces had held the airport. Donetsk has been the epicenter of violence that is furious during the Russian backed rebellion in eastern Ukraine.
The rebel assault on the airport made at least 6 Ukrainian soldiers dead and another 16 injure. The strike left the airport in downfalls. Images from the airport look like something out of a postapocalyptic film.
This is what the Donetsk airport looked like only one year past.
This is what it looks like now.
The charred remnants of an Ukrainian flag.
It”s hard to believe this position was an active heart of society only annually past.
Now? It”s riddled with bullet holes.
I wonder whose bag that’s.
Analyzing what”s left.
The airport sign is missing a few letters.
A ruined personnel carrier.
This is right from a Mad Max film.
Unfortunately, the struggle in Ukraine is continuing to grind on with no clear end in sight. Both Moscow and Kiev continue to accuse each other of inciting further violence. Sadly, it”s the innocent civilians who endure while the politicians bicker.
