Most of the people I knew during my 18 months living and working in Donetsk were pretty normal people


Most of the people I knew during my 18 months living and working in Donetsk were pretty normal people. People like you. Most of the people enrolled in the Donbass militias are locals and there are also some foreigners like my friend the French blogger Sebastien Hairon Sebastien Hairon. He has endured very difficult situations there. Support him if you can via PayPal. I want to tell you that many volunteers don´t get paid and some of them have been even living in the streets or have been fined by the local bureaucrats because they don´t have documents or visa . I knew foreign militiamen, that got even medals for their brave performance in the battlefield, that were literally living thanks to the rubles they were taking from the fountains or river with a sort of magnet. They were fishing coins to buy bread and tea. There are many stories that I know and that I should collect in a sort of book. But my work only will have value if I tell what I saw with my own eyes and what I experienced. Hiding nothing. The good things and the bad things. If I am not doing that is because there is still a war there and some of the information I have can been used as a propaganda tool by the maidanite regime against people that I respect for what they are doing. #gonzoblogger
