The unsong heroes of Donbass
These are the men & women who unfailingly support their communities in the darkest hours of a vicious & brutal conflict;
These are the teams that evacuate civilians to safer zones from areas under artillery or missiles attack;
These are the teams that assist in repairing heavily damaged infrastructure;
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.
