Donbass Chronicles 6. Winter at gunpoint and on 3 truce hryvnia

We sit here, discuss everything and everyone. Prospects of Minsk-3, frank stupid ukropraviteley and so on. We make predictions, far-reaching conclusions are trying to organize ...

And life goes on. Is it good or bad, but it is coming. You can sit in Geneva, Minsk, Paris, you can discuss many issues of the future of Ukraine in particular, and the Donbass as a whole. Can. But is it necessary?

Donbass will return back to Ukraine only when there is not a single person who survived these two years. Until that time, you can not even rip and just save money on travel and flights.

Donbass does not voluntarily return. And do not stumble forcibly. And the memory just does not erase. Yes, we witnessed the fact that you can rewrite a whole layer stories one individual people. This is possible. Especially if everything around is subject to this goal.

And if not? And if you do not need to wake up the memory? If you just take, and, as a Donetsk colleague Vasily, just get to the outskirts of Donetsk. And everything falls into place.

District Oktyabrsky. Two kilometers - Sands. And the airport is generally behind him. Who here heard about a truce? Yes, everyone heard. Truce is when the Grads and the Hurricanes are not used. The sounds of fighting the neighborhood hears daily.

Small guns, machine guns, mortars, not so long ago heavy artillery went into action ... The other day, thanks to her "efforts", the power wires were damaged, which caused the lights to go off and the boilers turned off. Many houses have been the victims of attacks many times and now they look more like a sieve, some of them are simply torn up.

We published material about the New Year Donetsk. Beautiful city, seeking to live a normal life. Walk now with us for the part that is still in the war. And make sure that the three hryvnia is a good price for today's truce.

Winter at gunpoint.

Otherwise, life is more or less getting better. Shops open, the market works, houses slowly restore heating, gas, electricity and water constant. There are a lot of people on the streets, but they don’t like to talk about their lives on camera.

So this is "do not forget, do not forgive."

    Words are not needed here, just a glance is enough.

    When will this uncertainty finally end?

    Neither a full-scale war nor the real world ... all sorts of negotiations with the shooting Natsik over DONBASS are a mockery of common sense.

      One should not expect anything else from the country.

      When will this uncertainty finally end?
      It will end only when our leadership stops playing "Minsky-1,2 .....", stops trying, like Dr. Frankenstein, to sew the missing parts to Ukraine until it realizes that Ukraine will not be helped by Federalization, not by decentralization, not a damn thing. with the devil, NOTHING !!
      And no one is going to lift the sanctions from us, they will only increase. It’s time to already understand that there is a war against us, a war has been going on for hundreds of years, periodically subsiding or flaring up more violently and mercilessly. Donbass is only one of the battlefields in this war, but at the moment, probably the most important thing .......

    Dill do not understand that in the Donbass, under the threat of destruction, they raised another generation of people who cannot be forced to jump and listen to verbal diarrhea from the screens. People who walked under death are different. There is a feeling that Donbass under no circumstances will again become dill, as it is now.

    This is the same world when war is not needed. Kiev is waiting for a decree to attack the republics from the United States, but for now it continues to show its rotten essence to the world.

    How many lives and fates have been ruined .... My opinion, either it was necessary to either decisively take the Donbass to Russia, like the Crimea, or categorically forbid people to speak out to save the lives of people ....

      The Russians are at war with the Russians. After all, on the side of Kiev, there are probably a lot of ruined lives. And who is to blame?

      You, specifically, take the machine and go on the belly to crawl?
      Donbass will be separate for a long time, because the whole world is waiting for Russia to fit in.
      They say so - Russia attacked, that's why it's so shitty in Kiev.
      Joining the Donbass is a full-scale war. Perhaps not only with Ukraine. This is a real cross on all economic projects with Europe, for many years to come.

    Two points, maybe a little off topic. Punishers, in order to not lose good bonuses for fighting during a ceasefire, conduct provocative shelling for return fire, while sitting in good shelters, while not forgetting to bring home a lot of weapons for sale and heart-to-heart talk. The second point is the concealment by the fascist commanders of non-combat losses, because again it will be possible to lose co-payments and rank, and so you can turn everything back on ,, Separs ,,

    Donbas - you are in our heart.
    Donbas needs an ORGANIZATION, which means the PARTY, not a bureaucratic circle, but an ideological, ideological foundation on a solid organizational foundation. Which party is this? Guess three times.

      So who is against it.
      Let the communists gather instead of wagging their tongues about the brotherhood of the working people, going to exterminate their ideological enemies, should Lenin's mistakes be corrected someday.

    Good evening, dear colleagues !!! Treat whatever you like, but people here are not even tired of the war but of uncertainty !!! People rose for the Russian spring and the Russian world and now what? Let Russia gain courage and say which side it is on. One will say THANKS TO RUSSIA for their support, but if we have to, then we will die here to the last.
