Donetsk: An american glance

RTD and Miguel Francis Santiago, the author of “Crimea for Dummies”, go to Donetsk where the bloody conflict between the Ukrainian army and the anti-government forces is in full swing. With contradictory information coming from the region, witnessing the situation first-hand is the only way to find out what’s really happening there. They visit the city’s devastated airport and go to the Donbass Opera that also serves as a bomb shelter for locals. On their way, they talk to anti-government fighters to learn why they took up arms, as well as common citizens who are trying to go on with their lives and preserve a sense of normality in these dire circumstances.
