    Local apocalypse in Eastern Ukraine | Ep. 178

    Local apocalypse in Eastern Ukraine. We went there again, and this is what we can tell you. In some villages, every single house has been destroyed, without exception, and some tiny towns have been practically wiped off the face of the earth. It will be a long time before normal life can return to these places. This is the result of the Russian crime of aggression, cruel and senseless.

Must listen

English speakers are very lucky to have access to such high quality Ukrainian reporting and discussion. Thank you for such an informative and interesting show. I often look at Ukraine World Website and read articles from it so I was very happy to find it’s podcast.

Only since February 24th have I begun to learn about Ukraine. I am very sad that I did not know much about it, it’s history and culture and I feel that Ukraine was often not referred to enough in general history books or distinguished from Russia. Now I have seen the incredible Ukrainian spirit and I respect it immensely. I want to listen to and support Ukraine This podcast will help me do that, and it is excellent to hear information directly from Ukrainians instead of second hand reporting.

Fascinating perspectives

Of course now is a very vital time for Ukraine so the podcast is interesting to listen to for voices from there.

I also find the general cultural perspective from a Middle European country that is so affected by Russian culture really informative and useful.
