DPR OLDER COUPLE: "THE UKRAINIAN SIDE SHOOTS WHENEVER THEY WANT; NO ONE HOLDS THEM ACCOUNTABLE"

When in the People's Republic (DPR) and visiting the Mine 6-7 area, I saw a school whose basement is now used as a shelter.

There, I met an elderly couple who have been living in that dank, stinking, basement for six years, their home destroyed.

Outside the battered school, Dmitry commented: "You see, each dot on the wall is from shrapnel.

Of course there were direct hits also."

One of the direct hits is a hole in the roof of the building. In the basement a musty stink overwhelmed.

Sitting in one corner of the paint-chipped, barebones, room, what possessions they were able to salvage piled near them, an older couple explained that their house was destroyed by two direct hits with heavy artillery, and that their only hope is to get Russian passports; that this will somehow end the war.

They agreed to talk but didn't want to have their faces filmed.

"Before the ceasefire, when Ukraine would shell, the DPR military would respond and the Ukrainian side would stop shooting for a couple of weeks, because they were afraid. Now, we are in a ceasefire, the Ukrainian side shoots whenever they want and no one holds them accountable."

The same thing happened in Yugoslavia. The western world blamed Serbs for everything, while other nations that attacked them were not held accountable. I want to say the conspiracy of the elite affects all social relations worldwide.
