2014 - Ongoing
I started documenting war in Eastern Ukraine from its very beginning in early April 2014, when the crisis in Donbass turned violent between Russian-backed separatists and Ukrainian officials in Donetsk and Luhansk oblast, home to 15 percent of the nation’s population.
The violence has left at least 2,877 soldiers killed since the start of the anti-terrorist operation Ukrainian Security Service reported.
Moreover, some 6,500 civilians have been killed and almost 10,000 wounded as the United Nations estimated. Over a million people were forced to leave their homes due to shelling.
The war crimes from both sides such as looting, executions to death, prisoners of war and tortures, kidnapping and killings of local people and political activists remain unpunished.
