The photographer who has witnessed a lot of hot spots shared his impressions on the work in the ATO area.
"This is exactly the case when the friendly attitude to the journalist, the general comfort in the work, a large number of interesting situations and full access confront the absolute necessity to stop oneself. If you don't stop you might be dead. As long as I was on the positions, throughout the whole rotation cycle, I witnessed continuous clashes, shelling and trench duels. The things happening in the Mariupol sector are very serious. There is no truce. Why should we be hypocritical? Classic trench warfare is going on, and people are dying. I have no illusions - the bloodshed in the Donbas will not end soon. The wounds have not healed... The arrogance has not subsided..."
