War in the Donbas

There is a war in the middle of Europe, forgotten by nearly all. A photo exhibition in London on May 6 will attempt to bring back the reality of it. Featuring photos taken by the soldiers themselves, it will raise funds for the Children of Ukrainian Heroes charity supporting children in Ukraine affected by the ongoing conflict. More information at the facebook event.

The organizers graciously agreed to let Euromaidan Press readers take a sneak peek at some of the photos from the exhibition, by Maksym Muzyka, a Ukrainian soldier, activist, and volunteer.

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

        Ah yes, Andrew the Putin-troll is back.

        Andrew hates to see films like this, which tell the story of how courageous Ukrainians put their lives on the line to stop the forces of his master Putin.

        He never has anything good to say about them, and he attacks those who do.

  2. Avatar Liever says:

    This is the result of WESTERN INTERVENTION in Ukraine! Instead of letting Ukrainians choose their leaders, they overthrew Ukraine’s ELECTED OFFICIAL and replaced it with a JUNTA! the KIEV JUNTA DOES NOT represent the people of Ukraine!!

        1. Avatar Alex George says:

          Not much apparently, since you have not been able to come up with a single argument against anyone here.

          1. Avatar Mr. Jackson says:

            Go switch account again, you crazy Ashkenazim Troll !~

    3. Avatar Alex George says:

      Except that’s not what happened, is it?!

      Be honest now – you know the Ukrainian people stood up against the murderous tyrant Yamukovych. Your fuehrer Putin then tried to impose his will on the people of Ukraine by force.

      He failed, because his soldiers lacked courage.

      1. Avatar Mr. Jackson says:

        What happened is that NEOCON engineered war against Russia, using MORONIC & MURDEROUS Ukrap Catholics and that is a terrible thing – so many dead people … all dying for the advances of The Empire’s geopolitical interests and aspirations!
