The civil war in Ukraine is almost forgotten by our news media but it is only getting worse. Poroshenko’s announcement that the US is to supply lethal weapons to the Kiev government means things are going to get much worse before they get better.
But this is what it is like for civilians being evacuated by Donetsk forces from the current battle area near Debaltseve.
As one of the refugees demands – Poroshenko should negotiate. A political solution is necessary and it is the only way to end this war. It is what the suffering civilians need.
For balance here is some footage on the evacuations from the side of the Kiev troops.
