In some recent interviews shared by an American Independent media organization called RAIR Foundation, residents of the separatist regions recognized as independent countries by Putin describe the attacks by the Ukrainian military since 2016.
Watch the video below:
“It all started around June 2014, when we decided to separate from Ukraine. So they started shelling us… mornings and nights,” one woman recalls.
“My husband and I went to vote in the referendum,” she continues. “We were walking there while they were shooting at us, under artillery shelling.”
An older woman agrees, saying she remembers seeing leaflets telling residents to the leave the area around the same time.
“They were dropping leaflets on us in 2014 saying we should leave immediately, take ourselves and get off the land because it does not belong to us,” she says. “They don’t need the people who live here; they want our land and our coal, but they don’t need the people.”
Footage in the video purports to show Donbas residents digging through the rubble of a demolished building searching for survivors.
“Ukraine was shooting at us,” an interviewee recalled realizing. “They hate us.”
She continued: “When they started bombing us, killing children, women and the elderly, I understood that they hate us, even though we didn’t do anything to them; we didn’t start a war against them. They started it.”
The woman also described psychological manipulation by the Ukraine military, who told residents they brought the attacks on themselves with advanced military artillery.
“They say we attacked them, that we bomb ourselves. When it all started, they said they were not using weapons against civilians… They were bombing us using all kinds of unlawful weapons: cassette bombs, Grads, Uragans.”
One Ukrainian mother with her three children shared how the MSM ignores some facts, and presents only the pro-Ukrainian side of the story.
She emphasized that everyone says ‘’Help Ukraine’’ but their voices were ignored years ago. Her interview emphasized the perspective ignored by the Western media to case Russia as the enemy, but the Donbas’ people’s voices have to be heard!
The interviews that RAIR Foundation shared came on the heels of a French Journalist stating that the Ukrainian government targets its own citizens.
