Stories, 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.

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

      Civil War in Which the Lviv/Galician Catholic Scum Murders Easter Ukrainian Christians and Lots of Lots of Corruption? But of course… the ukraine will never be a country.

  • Liever

    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!!

    • zorbatheturk

      Farkov you sack of dung.

      • Mr. Jackson

        And you are drinking from the toilet and think this is normal because your rabbi says it is?

        • zorbatheturk

          Suck a rat shawarma, toad.

          • Mr. Jackson

            Hello pipi doodler! Why are you so mad?
            Do what you do best, get on your knees!

          • zorbatheturk

            Yawn. That the best you can do?

          • Mr. Jackson

            That’s what your rabbi told you to say here?

          • zorbatheturk

            Rabbi says to circum size your skull.

        • Alex George

          So you don’t deny that your fuehrer Putin is losing the foolish war he started in Ukraine.

          • Mr. Jackson

            Oh, dear … YOU are still an old, Lying, Ashkenazim Troll !!

    • MichaelA

      Ha ha Ukrainians kicked your a*** without western intervention

      • Mr. Jackson

        Ha ha dumb Alex George cannot get rid of Ha Ha … “Ashkenazim Troll”, what can I say!

        • Alex George

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

          • Mr. Jackson

            Go switch account again, you crazy Ashkenazim Troll !~

    • Alex George

      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.

      • Mr. Jackson

        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!

    • Mr. Jackson

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

  • veth
