36 Nuclear Explosions in Donetsk Today

Nuclear Explosions in Donetsk Today

  Rememebr peaceful photos of Soviet Donetsk from 1984 we had yesterday? Well this is Donetsk as of six hours ago according to the locals. I am not sure what exactly those explosions are but there are rumors based on the Ukrainian top military authority quoted by a journalist  in his Facebook post where he says some quote "tactical nuclear weapons were used against our soldiers in Donetsk airport. Those were
fired with 2S4 "Tyulpan" Soviet self-propelled mortar which (quoting Wikipedia) "can fire armour-piercing, chemical and nuclear rounds". He said that the explosions were that strong that buildings collapsed totally "from basement to the fifth store". "If not those Tyulpan's we could stay there for a few months more". A few more photos and videos of those explosions are inside:

Donetsk in 1984

Probably most of us here have heard about the city of Donetsk - a place in Ukraine that has been all over the news lately and probably suffered the most from what's happening there. And to see what it was like before, it would probably be interesting to
compare it to the photos of the city from thirty years ago - the year 1984, when American photographer Will Blizzard visited the city. Now there are some photos left for us to see the city on the verge of the collapse of the USSR. Enjoy.

Power Plant Destroyed, Million People Left Powerless

  Meanwhile, it has been reported that a few hours ago a major power plant was destroyed in Lughansk, Ukraine, leaving over one million people around it without power. They have not yet said if power will be restored in the near future.
There are two versions of what happened - some say it was shelled by rocket systems, others say there were mines set earlier and they were activated now. Anyway, this is pretty disturbing. Some more photos are inside.

Reimagined Earth Globes for Sale Now

People report seeing such globes for sale. What is special about these ones is the coloration. You see the Russian territory is colored green and the United
States is violet, however Alaska is also colored green on them. This is not the only territory marked green on those new globes. See more inside.

A Politician in a Trash Bin (Literary)

As things getting more and more hectic in Ukraine here is the today's video when the mob of angry people throws a nicely dressed in suit and tie politician into a real life trash
bin and keeping him there for some time. I am especially amused by a few police men standing just there and not trying to rescue the authority. See inside:
11 Homeless Monkeys in Lugansk

Homeless Monkeys in Lugansk

Remember the airport of Lugansk that was utterly destroyed as a result of war?  We called it "Crazy War Aftermath" at that time. But here is one more report from that city, Lugansk. After an airstrike destroyed some place where monkeys were, they were forced out
on the streets and now wander around. It's good it's still summer over there and the temperature is warm and there are plenty of greens around, however it should be snowing soon, where will these creatures go? There is one more photo inside:
24 The Demons Tank

The Demons Tank

  "Demon" or "Bes" in Russian, that's what one of the fighting sides in Ukraine calls himself and his group, the Demon's Regiment. And this is their tank, probably captured in a fight. They did some
paintwork to express themselves and we can see some of the artwork in the photos here. As you already see, the armor has a large painting of a demon-like creature's face on it. What else is there?

War Comes to another Major City

  Those are "Czech hedgehogs" or anti-tank hedgehogs - obstacles used to stop the tanks, mainly deployed during World War 2. Now, 70 years later, a few generations of people were born who have seen those only on the photos or in the old movies. However, those are reality now again in Ukraine. This is a fresh
photo from around the city of Mariupol which is told to be attacked tonight by the approaching army. The hedgehogs has been deployed and tens of thousands of people try to flee the city. There are a few of fresh videos of missiles, anti tank hedgehogs and people fleeing the cities inside:

Got Master Degree? Now Flee

So this is happening - Ukrainian professionals, including these musicians flee to Russia to get at least something instead of fully nothing they can get now in Donetsk, Ukraine and other Eastern parts of the country. Those told to be pretty professional musicians (I hope you can tell by watching them play) now play in underground subway
stations for a heap of change they hopefully can get from the passers by. Some of them were getting their master degree in Donetsk, some already graduated and having master in music. Now this. But main reason for this being posted here is not where they are from, just look how nicely this sounds in metro:

21 More War Aftermath Shots from Ukraine

More War Aftermath Shots from Ukraine

Blown up tanks and APCs, projectiles and bullets, stacks of ammo and so on - more than 70 photos of things in Ukraine now. Just imagine this all happening in the places where people live. Nobody evacuated most of them, so they continue their daily routines to the extent
they can do this - all doing this among the other people cruising around in tanks and shooting, mines and bombs. They had some peace talks today, hopefully it will be fruitful and the people can get some air to breath, at least for time being.
