In the age of open source investigations and desk-side journalism, it’s easy to lose sight of the truth. When information is easier to access, the truth gets buried. Donbas Unfiltered compares the experiences of being there with what is portrayed in the media. It discusses the political ideologies as presented in the news, compared to how they are presented by the fighters and the civilians.
This book attempts to explain international law, foreign fighters, political extremism, and interviews the key players in eastern Ukraine.
THE SHADOW OF THE BEAR
From Ukrainian Activists to Pro-Russian Separatists
Kat Argo journeyed from the very heart of the Maidan protests in Kyiv, to the self-proclaimed pro-Russian Donetsk People’s Republic days after the Malaysian Airliner crashed over eastern Ukraine.
Caught in fiery riots and artillery bombardments, she broke bread with Russian separatists, encountered foreign fighters and met injured Ukrainian soldiers at a military hospital. She traveled with a French photojournalist, got a press pass from the breakaway Donetsk government and drank with activists, and developed friendships with idealists, volunteers, combatants, Nazis, Nationalists and Communists.
This is a story about the war’s effect on ordinary people, an intense narrative into the heart of the Ukrainian conflict from the eyes of a war tourist.
