Conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which began in 2014, drags on today. Despite many attempts for peace, both sides continue shelling military and even civilian targets.
Eric Mock with the Slavic Gospel Association reports from near the disputed area. “It’s almost they’re shelling each other because they can. There is shelling from both sides. There is no sense of either side making progress.”
The shelling leaves infrastructure in ruins, and civilians in constant danger. But those who remain don’t have the option to leave. Mock says, “The elderly, a lot of them widows, have absolutely nowhere to go. And they are by themselves. They don’t have anyone to connect with, no means of support. And then many women are trying to take care of kids with really, again, nowhere to go.”
