There are almost no words to describe this incredible account.
John Mark Dougan’s friend, Maria, describes how she as a Russian, felt about the “war” in Ukraine due to the anti-Russia information she was receiving and completely believed. The sense of shame, of guilt.
John Mark persuaded her to go to Donbass with him and see and hear for herself from the people. This is her account. She says now she must go back and help; she has no choice.
How much of what she believed previously is true she is asked? None of it, she replies. It is all lies.
Maria speaks beautiful English; John Mark tells her not only is she very brave, she is the best translator he has ever had!
John Mark Dougan
This is my most powerful interview yet. I took Maria, a fierce liberal, anti-war protester to the FRONT LINES of the war in the Donbass to see things for herself, to speak to the people for herself. This woman, with balls of steel, even walked with me through the streets of Svyatogorsk, with Ukrainian snipers just 200 meters away, to speak to civilians trapped in their basements and bring them food. How much of what she believed was right? Or wrong? This is an interview you must see to believe.
