THE SILENCE LEFT BEHIND

2022

The Kiyv region is now a ghost area, where the echo of fear and violence resonate in the silence left behind by the war. I was in Borodyanka, Irpin or Bucha, near the capital, as in many other villages in the areas surrounding Kyiv to document the horror unveiled by the withdrawal of the Russian army.

Two months after the start of the war in Ukraine, Russian forces are continuing their offensive and have seized several towns in the Donbass region in the east of the country.

Putin has promised a “rapid and fiery” response in the event of external intervention, even going so far as to raise the threat of a third world war.
