In a world of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act, George Orwell

Indignez-vous ! Stéphane Hessel

“Le courage c’est de chercher la vérité et de la dire ; c’est de ne pas subir la loi du mensonge triomphant qui passe, et de ne pas faire écho, de notre âme, de notre bouche et de nos mains aux applaudissements imbéciles et aux huées fanatiques ”.” – Djordje Kuzmanovic

Blog - спасатель Donbass Donetsk Lugansk unsung heroes (eng)


The unsong heroes of Donbass

These are the men & women that you very rarely see in the news; nor do they ask to be in the media limelight. They don't carry rifles nor wear camouflaged uniforms, yet you will find them in the conflict zone.

These are the men & women who unfailingly support their communities in the darkest hours of a vicious & brutal conflict;

These are the men & women who rescue trapped civilians, fight fires in a conflict zone; often putting themselves in great danger;

These are the teams who with calmness & dedication defuse unexploded ordnance right across a shattered land;

These are the teams that evacuate civilians to safer zones from areas under artillery or missiles attack; 

These are the men & women who literally pick up the pieces of a ruined community & endeavour to give civilians the essential amenities to sustain some sort of life;

These are the teams that assist in repairing heavily damaged infrastructure;

They are there on hand,day in & day out, 24 hours, every week, monthly since last late springtime.

Of course, these were the people that had the gruesome task  to recover the bodies of MH17 back in July.

You probably don’t realize the hardship that they have to accept being on the front line.

In other parts of the world, they would be either part of the fire fighting services or under the banner of civil protection, (or both). They are unsung heroes in times of disaster or emergency, but to do this work in the midst of a war, is a testament to a courage & dedication beyond words.
