Grandmas have lived in a bomb shelter for four years and a top military chief has some of the worlds most dangerous snakes in his office. This is the life inside the rebel held territory of Donetsk.
In the weekend edition of Aftenposten our story from Donetsk was published. We’ve met up with Maria, a 85- year old woman living on the fourth year in a bomb shelter on the frontline, a commander that has snakes at his office and spent time at the annual 9th of May military parade in town. The story was published one week after their prime minister Aleksandr Zakharchenko was killed in an apparent assassination.
