MAIMED In A PLAYGROUND By Ukrainian Petal Mine

On the 14th of November, @John Mark Dougan , @Eva K Bartlett Masha and I were PRIVILEGED to be given the honour of meeting this remarkable young man. Bloodied, but not broken, he is on the road to recovery in the hands of the heroes and heroines working in the hospitals of Donetsk and Moscow.

Nikita is 14 years old. He loved to break dance and was into MMA. His dreams have NOT been crushed, rather, they’ve been made more challenging due to the Barbarism and war crimes practiced by Ukraine as they continue to fire prohibited munitions into residential areas of Donbass, often harming children, emergency workers, the elderly and partially sighted, among many other civilians.
