More and more towns caught up in fighting as Ukrainian forces make inroads.
By Dmitry Durnev -
People in eastern Ukraine’s Donbas region are hoping against hope that peace will be restored, if only because they think things cannot get much worse. “The darkest hour is just before the dawn” is a phrase often recited here.
People hunt for increasingly scarce food in the shops, and dive into Soviet-era bomb shelters when the artillery opens up.
Until very recently, war still seemed far away for residents of Donetsk. Yes, there was sporadic gunfire in the city, people were abducted, shops were looted, and businesses were closing down one after another, but everyone was aware the real fighting was going on in Lugansk and Slavyansk, where pro-Russia insurgents were hemmed in by advancing Ukrainian troops.
