War breeds stories

War and man - a twisted relationship in which one cannot exist without the other. Hard to say why I wanted to open that door, but I felt I needed to make more sense of it. No matter the cost or mental health. In any case, I packed only the bare essentials, arranged contacts and flew off to Ukraine to pick up some stories... I was not interested in the battlefront. Nor did I need to take selfies in a bullet-proof vest, even though it may be the cool thing to be doing now on Facebook. The rules were clear: the world does not need more pictures and my kids need to have their old man around. That’s why I set out for the hunt and took it behind the curtain, so to say, into the relative safety of Kiev, Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk where there.
