Donbass 2022

These photos were taken during the war, between May 2022 and June 2022 in the separatist zone of Ukraine: Donbass. They took place in a lot of cities of the “Donetsk People's Republic” before its not recognized annexation to Russia: Donetsk, Makeyevka, Mariupol, Volnovakha, Yasinovataya, Volodarske… We met a lot of civilians as well as some officials: Constantin Zinchenko (head of the temporary administration of Volnovakha), Dmitry Shevchenko (head of the administration of Yasinovataya) or Boris Litvinov (general secretary of the Donetsk Communist Party and former President of the Donetsk Suprem Soviet).
