DISPATCHES FROM THE SOUTHERN FRONT
100 days since the beginning of the war in Ukraine
February 24th, 2022 is the date when the Russian president V. Putin started his so-called special operation in Ukraine. Nothing less than a military invasion of a sovereign country, nothing less than a war. Propaganda is the word that mainly identify this conflict: through social media, magazines and tv, common people knows what is happening inside Ukraine and outside its borders, but unfortunately as usual the narrative changes depending on who tells the story. Glamour pictures helps to keep high the propaganda, showing confidence and resilience, but living the field the narrative can be just one: war remains inside you, under and above your skin, in your shadows. Families were split, setting off the wave of refugees that has poured into neighbouring countries. Common people are enrolled in the territorial defence, the same people who try to cope with daily bombings of the grey area. Day after day, in the south of the country the front line moves forward. Little villages are setting free and with them the stubborn citizens who decided to stay despite the invasion. After more than 100 days from the beginning of the war started by Russia against Ukraine, there are no signs of peace agreements.
