  • Overview

This is a movie about the Donbas war, first-person stories. You will hear the stories of so-called "ordinary people". These people suffered from irrational from a military point of view strikes on civilian targets. They are victims of someone's desire to wage war on their territory at all costs.

There are no author's comments in this movie and no censoring of the thoughts of the local people. This film was made especially for spectators in Europe, who do not know what is happening in Eastern Ukraine.

The purpose of the film is to arouse interest in the ongoing six-year armed conflict and to make people to start to think about the responsibility of each of us for peace in Europe.

Update from March 2022: The above was written in September 2019. Now the war is being waged throughout Ukraine and the fate of the people of Donbass is shared by many people in the country. But while the "democratic world" was aggressively indifferent to the lives of the people of Donbass, a wave of empathy has now broken out. Not bad, on the contrary, but there remains a bad taste of double standards. This large-scale war had to be stopped in its infancy, but apparently the interest in its expansion was too strong. We, the people who fought for peace during those eight years, have failed because our voices have been muffled. But we did what we could.
