Children of war


Any armed conflict is merciless to children. Bullets, shells, rockets and bombs are absolutely indifferent to who they kill - old people, women or children. Together with civilian men for this category of victims in military science, even such a term was coined by "non-combatants". Obviously, not to hurt the eyes.

They say that in order to turn into a pacifist, it is enough to visit a field hospital in the midst of a battle. Or look a crippled veteran in the eye. We can add the third - the most unbearable - to see firsthand the deaths of children in the war. History Donbass is unique in this sense. Here, almost the entire territory is a place of battle that is mortally dangerous for a child. According to UN estimates, the Donbass republics now occupy the fifth place in the world in terms of the abundance of unexploded ordnance and mines. There is a special childhood in this region - a child by the age of three or four already understands what ammunition is and is wary of it. But this is if the parents are conscious and are aware of where they live. Often, educational programs are organized for young residents of Donbass to demonstrate a wide arsenal used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine against its own population. From the presentations it becomes scary - Donbass is generously flavored with PMN-2, TM-62, PFM-1 "Lepestok" mines, F-1, RGD-5 grenades and 82-mortar ammunition. According to experts, it will take from 10 to 15 years to completely clear the territory of the conflict from explosive objects. By the way, the legacy of the Great Patriotic War is added to the evidence of the current war in Donbass. Demining units regularly encounter 80-year-old ammunition.

The child's consciousness is not formed, it is difficult to blame him for the careless handling of ammunition. But children die and are maimed, including through the fault of adults. There is a known case when a father asked his son to cut an unexploded mine with a grinder. Or another head of the family, for fun, threw an RPG rocket into the fire in the presence of three of his own children.

Over the past year, 70 civilians, including many children, were blown up by mines in the Donbas. Quarantine related to COVID-19 made its adjustments, otherwise there would have been more victims. In 2019, 324 mine casualties were counted in eastern Ukraine - more only in Mali and Afghanistan. In total, according to UN statistics, from 2014 to August 2019, at least 38 children died from mines and other explosive objects in Donbas. In the current 2021, the mine war clearly will not end. On April 6, in the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) in the city of Slavyanoserbsk, two teenagers were blown up by an unknown explosive device, one of whom died. It is not known whether it was an accidental detonation or the children deliberately disassembled an explosive device. In any case, child mortality has become a terrible daily routine in Donbass.

War as a way of life


For an adult, war is an incredible overstrain of forces, which does not pass without a trace for the subsequent peaceful life. Injuries and chronic diseases born in the crucible of war do not bother a fighter until a certain time. War veterans testified that the body seemed to "endure" stress during the battle, and then turns off all internal fuses. Hence, nervous disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder and numerous somatic diseases. For several years, the children of Donbass have been permanently in the combat zone with the appropriate surroundings - fire, smoke, explosions, blood, injuries and deaths of loved ones. A typical example from the front-line village of Zaitsevo. In the family of Maxim, daughters were born after 2014, and the war for the kids has become commonplace. But one of the daughters Nastya behaved in a special way - she closed in on herself, was afraid of the military and technology, and was capricious. As a result, against the background of constant stress, the child developed diabetes mellitus. Now Nastya receives four insulin injections every day and will remain permanently disabled. In total, up to half a million children in Donbass need help - psychological and humanitarian. The ongoing aggression of Ukraine threatens the well-being of an entire generation. Can a child who lives in constant fear for his life grow out of a child who has lived throughout childhood into a full-fledged healthy person? How can a child's mental and physical health be preserved if there is often a minefield 150-200 meters from the school? But, as it turned out, this is not the limit of childhood suffering.

Toy coffins


A slow-moving war for civilians can be more dangerous than a full-scale conflict. Today they shoot, and tomorrow it will be quiet. This can go on for months and years. The civilians seem to have to leave, but there is a glimmer of hope that this time a mine (shell, rocket) will fly by. And I don’t want to give up the modest belongings acquired over the years. Now, if the enemy tramples on our lands, then men will take it in their hands weapon, and we will take the elderly, women and children away from the front. Four-year-old Vladik Shikhov, whose death has already become an object of mockery from the Ukrainian side, has become another victim of such a "sluggish war". The child was killed by a homemade bomb dropped from a drone on the peaceful village of Aleksandrovskoye on April 2. In Ukraine, the media and exalted commentators have already called this tragedy a fake. Say, the child himself brought the equipped grenade to the garage. Could not, according to Ukrainian "specialists", drones of the Armed Forces of Ukraine fly twenty kilometers behind the front line and drop a bomb on sight. Western Ukraine commentators are silent about the fact that almost anyone can assemble such a drone from one or two Aliexpress packages.

According to various estimates, more than 100 children have died in the Donbas over the seven years of the war. This is a monstrous figure that speaks of the methods of conducting hostilities by the Ukrainian side. Children are natural victims of shelling of residential areas, as well as an instrument of psychological influence on the population. When a person sees a series of toy coffins, the thought is born in his head that everything that happens around is already beyond the line of good and evil. Fear, panic, and despair are not your best companions in battle.

The war crimes of the Ukrainian army against the children of Donbass are an attempt to bleed the population of the unrecognized republics and cause a massive outflow of refugees. However, now it is becoming a symbol of the blind and helpless rage of subhumans, who raised their hand on the child on the other side of the front. And so that contemporaries do not forget about the atrocities of the Kiev aggressor, the Alley of Angels with the names of the dead children appeared in Donetsk. And if the operator of that drone above Aleksandrovskaya on April 2 manages to avoid a well-deserved punishment, then the chilling words of grandmother Vladik will be his retribution:

“Let this child come to him every night and ask where his leg is. There is still no leg. "

          Why should they, politicians, not continue their "game" if they do not pay with their lives for the death of children, old people and women. How long? .. probably after 6 years of war it is necessary to ask the defenders of Donbass, who prefer to chop off the growing tentacles of an octopus rather than their growing heads. It is already useless to ask ukronatssprut anything.

        Ukronatsi did not appear out of nowhere, everyone knows who created them and with what money, these are the main ones and they will continue to do evil and bring grief. But how to get them and make them answer ??? The Nazis can simply be destroyed, as history has shown, and they will be destroyed sooner or later.

          I ask the administration not to delete these lines belonging to the poet of Russian Spring Leonid Kornilov. The verse is taken from the author's official page on the social network "Vkontakte" https://vk.com/leonid_kornilov
          Boy and girl in eternal metal.
          And behind them, childishly sweet,
          Two hundred and forty killed dreams
          Surrounded by fear and darkness.
          Two hundred and forty unfulfilled citizens
          With a newborn Russian soul.
          The heart of Little Russia about everyone
          Cries as well as Big's heart.
          There was less joy in the world
          And games decreased by one,
          Because Donbass children
          Don't play war today.
          Boy and girl in bronze leather
          To save, like armor, like the living.
          America has children too
          And she kills strangers.
          The lullaby of the bullets sang.
          It became dark to the white light.
          They did not have time to play enough,
          But toys are waiting for them anyway.
          Release the balls at dawn.
          Let heaven's playground
          Though the world will play enough
          Two hundred and forty naive hearts.

            Such poems are difficult to remove from memory, those who in Donbass experienced all the horror of shelling and losses of loved ones from those who recently communicated with them and they got married and celebrated the holidays, and then suddenly the abyss of hatred and cruelty .. Who rules them and for what, for what purpose children are dying .. Everyone is a lump in my throat and I can’t write ..

      There and their own apparently already full of thugs divorced - in fact, just bandits in uniform as part of the militia. Somewhere there was a video, as one of the "militia" razvlekuha for the sake of a grenade launcher shoots at houses. I can't vouch for the reliability of the video, but practice shows that where there is a deficit of legitimate power, nothing good happens - every bastard feels very comfortable.

      And for the children who died - a friend's son was playing online with two guys from Donbass or the LPR - one was killed, the other was wounded.

    The deceiving "Russian-speaking majority" has played a cruel joke in Ukraine.
    In the late 90s and early XNUMXs, living there in Ukraine (Zaporozhye, Russian-speaking region),
    I have often reflected on the topic of a possible conflict between Western and Eastern Ukraine.
    Even then it seemed to me that the safest regions would be besides Crimea, this is just Donbass.
    To see then, was the main marker of "friend or foe", this is the language of communication in everyday life.
    And only in 2012, I began to notice Russian-speaking Russophobes even among ethnic Russians in the Zaporozhye Russian-speaking region, and not only among Little Russians.
    One of them is the daughter of her parents from near Tver, the other who moved from St. Petersburg in 2007 !!!
    Well, the guys who came from the RSFSR before 1991, not all of course, but enough.
    I remember how they called me a provocateur on this site back in November 2013, when I published articles about Russian-speaking Russophobes, such as this one:
    In Ukraine, almost no Russian people are younger than 30 years. Only facts
    The most offensive thing is that nothing could be changed, all the origins date back to 1991 at best.

      With the completion of the SP-2, it is possible that the Russian Federation in the future will annex the Donetsk and Lugansk regions on the model of the Crimea, having previously defeated the units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces located there. But outside of these areas, as I understand it, the population is opposed to Russia, and you should not go there, since you will not be able to control the territory.

      And this syndrome comes to interesting. Even before the war, a young man from Ukraine arrived at his acquaintances - a relative (a relative of an acquaintance), to get a job here to study. When the mess with the Crimea began, he became "Svidomo", which is horror - Russia is an aggressor and stuff like that. But as soon as the choice arose to study in the Russian Federation or to fight in the ATO, he did not hesitate for a second to choose an institute in Russia.

    I ask you to answer one question, there is a criminal, there is a victim and there is a policeman who sees how the crime happens and does nothing, or stands on the sidelines doing push-ups, showing how strong he is (moving troops to the border) but does not interfere and does not help the victim, so who is more to blame for this situation?
