The Ruins of Donetsk Airport: Russian Roulette (Dispatch 95)

The battle between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russia separatists (DNR) for Donetsk Airport has raged for months, bringing significant losses on both sides. In late January, the airport fell to the DNR, ending Ukrainian forces’ hold on the site. The now unrecognizable airport lies in ruins.

VICE News travelled to Donetsk Airport, a once modern facility now reduced to rubble after months of fighting, to discuss with DNR fighters the battle for, and the future of, the strategically important site.

  1. before anyone mentions hands tied. they are loose loops used to keep bodies in a transportable shape once they stiffen up. thats why they are fairly loose because later the bodies will bloat up. also one body has the jacket shredded by shrapnel. the hands are still pink, so would indicate death less than 5 hours earlier.

  2. Надеюсь они подохли! Твари длять а не люди! Прешли с мечом на чюжую землью! Я руский и к этим тваряне отношусь!Я не предовал Украинский наррод! Мне стыдно,за то что я руский!Но я не россиянин! Я неголосовал за Ельцына суку и за ЕГО ПРИЕМНИКА ПУТИНА!

  4. 4:01 "People have to be reasonable. They have to understand. They shouldn't judge the political leaders, but support and help them instead." Such bullshit. People should always judge their political leaders even if they are doing their job right.

  5. So they had a brand new airport a few months ago which would’ve brought people and money into the area. But now the have a pile of rubble that they are in “control” of.
