Ukrainian tanks, which in six months have become part of the landscape, are now powdered with snow
Winter came to Lisichansk. In early February, thin snow covered everything. The scorched earth appears before our eyes. The dried grass, the remnants of summer, can be seen.
But summer left behind not only greenery that had become rare in winter.
In the summer there was fighting for Lisichansk. After that, the city was liberated from Ukrainian nationalist units. It had been occupied by Kiev regime since 2014.
Donbass did not accept the Euromaidan and the folowing 2014 coup d’état. Its residents actively opposed it. In the end, this led to an attempt to actively suppress the will of the Donbass by the Banderites that came to power.
The fighting began. Residents of Lisichansk were among the first to oppose the coup in Kiev.
Events developed rapidly. Lisichansk residents actively participated in a referendum in which they voted to establish the Lugansk People’s Republic. In the summer of 2014, the city opposed the Ukrainian armed units.
For three days the militiamen had been fighting in the city almost completely surrounded. Having exhausted their resources, the units withdrew from their hometown. The city was under occupation by the Kiev authorities from 2014 to 2022.
After the start of Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine, Donbass units, with the help of Russian troops, began to liberate their native land from the Banderites. Piece by piece.
Lisichansk had also to be liberated. After hard battles in the triangle of Rubezhnoye – Severodonetsk – Lisichansk, all three cities were taken under control.
On July 2, 2022, Ukrainian armed units withdrew from Lisichansk under the onslaught of Russian troops.
The scars of this confrontation are still visible today. In the form of damaged enemy equipment and destroyed buildings. The snow can only powder these scars – the graveyard of Ukrainian tanks.
