Pro Ukraine forces have lost control of the Donetsk airport. After many months
of the airport being the center and symbol of the intense war here in Donbass. The facts are that the Donetsk international airport has not been in normal operation and in fact has been a fierce battle field for over eight months since the 26th of May of last year.
In CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh piece it is reported that flights left Donetsk airport six months ago, and that fighting has only been going on there for six months. This is just not true. Maybe to some two months does not sound like a big deal. Well it is. People have died in this time. These facts will be studied in history books for years to come, and should be respected as such. Maybe if CNN would have given
more attention to this war they would have a better idea of the reality of what is going on here instead of just sending some people to do some war tourism for a couple of days.
The people here in Donetsk deserve the truth of what is happening here to get out to the world, not this –
Below you can find many of my reports and videos I have made on Donetsk airport in chronological order.
