INI went to see the buildings and the aftermath of the bombing. Instead, they showed me where the rockets landed. About an hour after I left, the city was hit,” Hospodsk noviny reporter Martin Ehl, who came out of the attacked country a few days ago, recounted his experience from Ukraine’s Pokrovsk region in the Donetsk region. Fears about Russia’s winter flows have not yet come true, but Ukraine is also beset by other problems.
“They were afraid before the winter that the Russians would steel their energy infrastructure like last year. There will be a need to provide heating and electricity, and who has a pension, and is preparing for it.

You have to plan your evening according to when you close restaurants, when you have to get home, when public transport stops working. But you have to get used to it,” describes Ehl, who during his travels did not meet anyone who would negotiate peace in exchange for an acceptable one. “But it’s great to see them,” he added.

It will make people feel that the ‘naked’ are similar to those who were there before. And that is true,” warns the Hospodské noviny analyst.
