People who care about the fate of Donbass often ask the question: why is there no war in the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR)? Why do they [the Ukrainian Armed Forces] attack the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), while Lugansk lives in silence? We want to show you the northern lines of defense in Lugansk, so that you can see with your own eyes the situation that is emerging on the contact line.
Few people know that the escalation which began early in the summer is still gaining momentum. The fighting in the area of Bakhmuta does not cease. Zholobok, Donetsk, Frunze, Golubovka and many other towns of the LPR are under fire. Civilians are suffering.
Fires, burnt houses, wounded people, fighting, exacerbation on the front line.
