I had a chat with a guy from Lugansk this morning. He asked me about the soldier I visit every day in hospital at the moment.
He also told me about the operation he had. Nice guy. We talk in Russian, obviously. I think he realises now he almost certainly will never return to Lugansk under Putin's occupation. Nice guy. His world destroyed by idiots. I remember when it all started - two years' ago now. He said that the people taking things over - "they are not our people". He was right. They were Russian occupiers.

The Russian dissident was murdered in London with polonium, but only on the third attempt. In an extract from his book A Very Expensive Poison, Luke Harding traces the toxic trail the clueless assassins spread around the capital.
It was a warm autumn day when the two Russian visitors arrived in Grosvenor Street, central London. Their names were Andrei Lugovoi and Dmitry Kovtun; the date was 16 October 2006. They had arrived that morning from Moscow carrying something that British customs failed to detect. Not drugs or large sums of cash, but something so otherworldly, it had never been seen before in the UK.
The substance was polonium, a highly radioactive isotope. It is probably the most toxic poison known to man when swallowed or inhaled – more than 100bn times more deadly than hydrogen cyanide. It had come from a Russian nuclear reactor. The job of Lugovoi and Kovtun was to deploy it. They had come to poison Alexander Litvinenko, a Russian dissident, MI6 employee and Kremlin critic. The visiting killers had no personal grudge against their target. They had been sent by Russia’s FSB spy agency, in an operation likely to have been approved by Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin.....

08 March - a big holiday here. Women's Day.
Most men, from what I gather, use the occasion to get drunk. And the women do the cooking. From observation...
Not good news.
One must assume that Russian "doctors" are like Russian "journalists".
The "journalists" from the "Shaun Walker school of journalism", and the doctors from the "Shaun Walker school of Medicine".
In a word - cr@p. Propaganda rules.
In Donetsk, the militants called monkeys, and the DNI - "hole" (apostrophe)
....Protesters may remember what they were doing it for the money. "To stand in the crowd and shout - 300-500 hryvnia, participated in the capture of buildings -. 800-1000 hryvnia to earn a lot of money ... Everything was beautiful: the people revolted, the people went out and defeated the prosecutor's office, the people won ... "Now I feel like a rat, which is to dance under a pipe Pied Piper", - says a resident of Donetsk Vladislav, a member of almost all pro-Russian shares in the spring of 2014.....
Many Donetsk residents do not care who wins and what flags will flutter over the mayor's office. Apathetic about the future and do not see any bright prospects....
In addition, it was found, as in Orwell's book that "some animals are more equal than others", I mean some of the "persons of the republic" live too little too rich....
TV does not believe: all have gone at least once to the "mainland" - in Mariupol and Artemivsk-Bakhmut - and saw that there was still talk in Russian, and punishers do not eat babies, and prices there more decent, much like no wiser with ruble-hryvnia exchange rate in the "central bank DNR"....

Lexicon of Contemporary donchanin
"Most of the land", "free territories" - the so-called not controlled by the militants of the Donbas and throughout the Ukraine. In the lexicon of the inhabitants of the occupied cities in two years, many new words. "Outbox", .... Militants DNR.. call - "leaky" "orks", "poluchlentsy" (option - "oplachentsy"), "Monkey", "spotted". Actually, the very DNI called "hole" more often...

The "hole" "took over" several supermarkets, and now former ATB officially called "First Republic supermarket", and the people - "oppressed." Those who have no money, receive humanitarian aid from Headquarters Rinat Akhmetov - "gumku", "Ahmet package." Moreover, all clearly share: from Russian trucks come in a "convoy" and "gumka" from Headquarters - in "string". The "convoy" of Russia driven "buckwheat", [the distributors] have the ability to shoot or explode.

Two years of frustration - and indifference as a result. Donetsk dies as a metropolis, a city that until recently - just two years ago - seething, boiling, he lived his habitually restless, but knurled life. He lost his pathos, slightly bourgeois chic, for that was not just mercilessly criticize other regions. Now, looking at the old photos where Donetsk in all its glory - with a flourish, monograms, golden monuments, highlight a la the New Year, pink and turquoise buildings - Donetsk residents can not hold back the tears.

Not a bad write up. No propaganda here. Just plain talk.
Now, why can't Shaun Walker - Moscow resident, and Russiaprofile - Guardian reporter write something up like this? Putin and Shameus Milne wouldn't approve of it.
