Body collectors of eastern Ukraine Shell-Shocked: Ukraine's Trauma 1 day ago   04:21

BBC News
Black Tulip is a Ukrainian organisation that has been working for more than a decade to find and identify bodies of missing soldiers from the First and Second World Wars. Its work is now focused on finding the hundreds of missing Ukrainian servicemen from the current conflict in the east of Ukraine.
With the consent of the authorities in rebel-held territory, the group is able to cross the frontline and travel to sites where it believes soldiers might have gone missing. So far Black Tulip has found and identified 613 bodies of dead soldiers. It says that between 300 and 1,500 are still missing. However Black Tulip says its valuable work, which helps the relatives of the fallen grieve, might have to stop because of a lack of funding. Film produced by Will Vernon and Tom Burridge and shot and edited by Stuart Antrobus.

A dirty war created by Hillary and Obama for the Zionists to eventually begin a war with Russia. It's too complex to explain here.

Грязные войны, созданные Хиллари и Обама для сионисты в конечном итоге начать войну с Россией. Это слишком сложно объяснить здесь.
Александр Климовских
Why don't you say about other side? Why don't you say about thousands of peaceful people killed by Ukrainian soldiers?!?! What about not military children and old people who were killed by Ukrainian poroshenko's soldiers?

Shell-Shocked: Ukraine's Trauma Body collectors of eastern Ukraine 1 day ago   20:01

It’s been two years since pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine broke away from the rest of the country, triggering a war that has killed more than 9,000 people, displaced a million civilians, and left entire towns and villages in ruins.

Ukraine’s government was wholly unprepared for the conflict, and its armed forces had been hollowed out by years of mismanagement even before the fighting began. As a result, Kiev has relied on tens of thousands of inexperienced volunteers to fight the brutal civil war. The country’s healthcare system had little experience dealing with the range of physical and psychological injuries sustained by soldiers and civilians. Once demobilized, soldiers are eligible for a number of benefits, but only if they can obtain their official veteran status. With the process slow and bureaucratic, many have been left struggling to deal with the traumatic aftermath of the conflict.

With no clear end in sight to the fighting, VICE News traveled to the country to investigate the war’s impact on soldiers and civilians, and to see how volunteer groups are stepping up to help.

Note: VICE News wanted to also see how the trauma of the war was being handled by the separatist authorities of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, but we were denied access.
