UKRAINE. Luhanskaya. 2016. Black Days Of Ukraine. Civilians escape from a fire at a house destroyed by an air attack. 

Ordinary people became victims of the conflict between self-proclaimed republics and the official Ukrainian authorities from 2014 onward in the region of Donbass. Disaster came into their lives unexpectedly. These people were involved in the military confrontation against their will. They experienced the most terrible things: the death of their friends and relatives, destroyed homes and the ruined lives of thousands of people.
