The Donbas war: a chronicle



Article by: Kirill Mikhailov & Alya Shandra

A brief history of Russia’s war in East Ukraine.

Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using the chanсe - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you.)  If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation

    Excellent analysis!!! Especially love the “Novorossiya expectation vs. reality” graphic at the end….poor little petulant “Volya” looks heart broken and ready to cry! That photo must have been taken at the G20 when he was made to sit at the “Bad Little Dictators Table” by himself…..

    Considering in March the entire Ukraine Army could barely make it out of the motor pool, Ukraine did pretty good. I wish they had pursued the lustration process in May when it would have done some good but they are now. Specially after so many MRE disappeared. D bags that steal a soldiers food should be drawn and quartered or worse feed issued rations.
