Traumatizing an entire generation - The voice and suffering of children in the war on Donbass

Traumatizing an entire generation - The voice and suffering of children in the war on Donbass
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about some courageous women who dared to speak up against the fascism in Ukraine.
