A Graham Newsletter (#19) Motorola, Donbass Goes Up, New Crowdfunding Campaign

Firstly, today would have been the 34th birthday of Motorola. Here are some of my photos of him, in tribute.

As you may know, I recently left Donbass, cited to return to the UK to take part in the inquest into the murder of Barry Pring, for which my 58-page report was one of the key materials considered by the coroner, Dr Elizabeth Earland, and mentined by her in closing remarks, as a verdict of death by unlawful killing was arrived at. That verdict, along with Dr Earland’s comment that Barry had been ‘tricked’ into standing by the side of the road, caused a media storm about the only person who could have tricked him, his wife, former stripper Anna Ziuzina.

I’m working on a documentary about the murder of Barry Pring now. 

Of course, in recent days, there’s been a sharp escalation in Donbass. And, I’ll be honest, if it weren’t for the incredible work of Patrick Lancaster in covering thise, I would have felt it necessary to rush back to Donbass. However, you can see here what amazing work Patrick is doing, in covering the shelling war, and sadly, killing of civilians by Ukrainian shelling.

And more, Patrick’s work in the humanitarian sphere.

Meanwhile, this is what the BBC are up to in Donbass. 

Back in London, I’ve already been busy, here asking in the UK parliament if an event to mark 25 years of UK / Ukraine cooperation would mention Ukrainian shelling of Donbass.

And here’s the launch of my new crowdfunding campaign, for the next 3 months of independent journalism, with lots of important, interesting events to come!

This 3-month period will encompass reportage from the UK, Europe, Russia, and Donbass!
