This is a memorial in the village of Khryashevatoye near Lugansk. Here are the names of 34 victims who died from August 13th to 29th, 2014. 28 of them were inhabitants of the village.
To understand the scale of the tragedy: 28 victims – 2.3% of the total population of Khryashevatoye. It’s like, for example, they killed 66 thousand people in Kiev in two weeks for nothing. Or 193 thousand in New York.
Is it clear? Is it clear, damn militarists? Is it clear, armchair warriors?
I don’t believe that on February 15, there will suddenly be peace. But I pray about it. That there will be no more deaths in this war. Not one.
On the list you can see 4, 3, 2 people with the same last name, from the same family. This is just one village. And how many villages, towns and cities were in the line of fire over the last 10 months?
