A Ukrainian Chaplain leads the troops around him in a prayer as a barrage slams all around them in the middle of the night. War is Hell.

Everyone knows that war is Hell, but rarely does combat footage, or a single story, ever truly capture that in full. This is one of those instances, where the gravity of the situation is so heavy that it can be felt directly through the lens of the camera.

A Ukrainian Chaplain leads a small group of soldiers in a prayer, as rounds impact in the distance. The video is recorded in the middle of the night, and each impacting artillery round lights up the surrounding area in a brilliant flash of chaos. War is most certainly Hell.
