Eastern Ukraine has sustained another day of heavy shelling. Today at least 5 people were killed in an army assault on a village near Donetsk, while the city itself was also hit. Inside the city, people are struggling with a dire humanitarian situation.

I was particularly moved by the 82 year old woman at the end of this news report who refuses to leave Donetsk as the Kiev regime's conscripted army, directed by the US, closes in for the kill.  Kiev has been saying they plan to take full military control of eastern Ukraine by September 1.  That means lots more innocent people will die in the next few days.
