War in the Donbas

As Ukrainians and the world celebrate the New Year and television channels broadcasts soothing news from the front – no victims – we are suddenly and bitterly reminded that war is again knocking at our door.

Nazar Holyuk, a soldier from Netishyn (Khmelnytsky Oblast) serving in the Aidar assault battalion was shot by a sniper in Horlivka (ATO zone). The bullet passed through Nazar’s heart …

We express our sincere condolences to the family and relatives of the deceased hero.

His memory will live on in hearts of Netishyn townspeople. Eternal glory to the heroes!

We will inform you about the time and place of Nazar’s funeral.

P.S. As of noon tomorrow and the day after, the Netishyn Self-Defense Unit will be collecting funds to help Nazar’s family.

Dear Ukrainians, do not be indifferent! He died to bring peace into our homes!

Dear readers! We need your help. COVID-19 has hit independent media outlets hard, but even more so in Ukraine, where most outlets are controlled by oligarchs. To make matters worse, several English-language media sources from Ukraine have closed recently. And even worse, this comes at a time of troubling government tendencies and amid a pro-Russian resurgence in Ukraine.  Help keep us online and reporting on the most important of Ukrainian issues for you in these troubling times, bringing the voices of civic society to the forefront of the information war. Our articles are free for everyone to use but we depend on our readers to keep going.  We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget and have no political or state affiliation.
