Footage from Donetsk, Ukraine, gives the viewer an idea of what it’s like to be stuck in an intense multiple launch artillery rocket system (MLRS) impact area. The cameraman does the right thing in hitting the dirt and attempting to become as flat and low as possible. The rockets shriek overhead and the ground shakes as the warheads impact the residential area.
Although this footage isn’t new, the war in eastern Ukraine continues take lives. Going on four years of conflict, an estimated 10,000 people have died, 3,000 of which were civilians. Additionally the war has displaced 1.7 million Ukrainians.
