The Other Days of Life
Bakhmut is a small town in the Donetsk region that should have become another victim of the russian occupation in the first months of the invasion of Ukraine.
Nonetheless, the town has been desperately standing against the fierce onslaught of the russian army for over a year, and now it is one of the bloodiest places in this war. Becoming the main achievement of the Russian occupation forces in more than six months of fighting if captured, Bakhmut has acquired a symbolic meaning for both sides, in addition to its strategic importance.
While the occupiers and their supporters see the future of the city in bringing back the Soviet past into it, the future of Ukraine is in not repeating the mistakes of the past and realising all the risks of living with the enemy next door.
