Storyline

In the Donbass, a region of Eastern Ukraine, a hybrid war takes place, involving an open armed conflict alongside robberies on a mass scale perpetrated by gangs. In the Donbass, war is called love, propaganda is uttered as truth, hatred is declared to be love. It’s not about one region, one country or one political system, it’s about humanity and civilization in general. It’s about each and every one of us.
