Together with our Donetsk colleagues, I invite you, dear readers, to a small photo tour of Donetsk at night. It was the night before Christmas.
I don’t know how the main majority, but those who saw and remembers what Donetsk was like before, will be informative.
Let's forget for a moment about the fact that mines and shells are still torn on the outskirts. We'll forget about a lot of negative things we are writing about Donbass reality. Because they wrote, and we will write, because as I repeat, we care. And in the near future we will write again. This is the reality.
But today we really wanted to show a little Christmas tale. The tale of Donetsk on this night. Yes, the people on the streets are not that small, but let's say, empty. The city is sleeping. But look, he is alive. Alive on Christmas night, and will live on. And I would like it to live, not survive. No matter what.
Yes, the city, in comparison with the pre-war years, is decorated very modestly. I can’t hear the usual fireworks and firecrackers in the streets. Can not see the festively dressed crowds of citizens. Do not invite cafes and restaurants to light. Everything is very modest and reserved.
This is what evening Donetsk looks like today.
