Ukrainian photographers Kostiantyn and Vlada Liberovy, who are documenting the Russian invasion of Ukraine, have taken a series of eerie pictures depicting destroyed houses in the war-torn town of Bakhmut, Donetsk Oblast.
“This is what hell on earth looks like,” they wrote.
“The town of Bakhmut, at least parts of it, is still under the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The town is under constant artillery fire, which does not abate day or night, regardless of whether it’s cloudy or sunny (usually when it’s cloudy, the artillery slows down a bit due to poor visibility for drones, but it no longer matters in Bakhmut). You can move around the town only at speed since any vehicle is a target. Enemy drones are hanging everywhere and can see everything, and there are no safe areas in Bakhmut today.”
The Liberovys also wrote about Russian air and artillery strikes, which turn residential building into mountains of construction debris.
“One of the symbols of Bakhmut is a high-rise building at the entrance to the town, with a mural depicting a happy family: a father is holding son on his shoulders, and a mother is holding their daughter nearby,” the report says.
“Only (the image of) father and son remained. The building with the image of the woman and the girl no longer exists (third photo). The Russian airstrike and many artillery strikes turned the building into a mountain of construction debris... This is exactly what they’re doing to our cities. This is exactly what they’re doing to our families.”
