3 years ago, I was covering events in Donbass, as a freelance journalist. January 2015 was a month from hell, Ukrainian shelling hitting Donetsk every day, dead bodies every day.
But, in January 2015, Ukrainian forces saved perhaps the worst until last. In mid-afternoon, a completely unexpected, unprovoked fusillade of shelling rained down by the ‘Hotel Europe’ in the Kubishevsky district of Donetsk. I was there on the scene to cover the horrific aftermath, and these videos, I publish for the first time in a long time, having had to remove them because of YouTube policies.
