Bukovina: soldiers relatives´continue to block Chernivtsi-Zhytomyr international highway

Soldiers’ relatives from Chernivtsi continued today, June 20, to block the international highway demanding that the soldiers be brought back from the Donbas, where they are part of Kiev’s “anti-terrorist operation.”

This was reported by the local website molbuk.ua from the Bukovina region. A separate report in the news website 112.ua quoted one of the women addressing the authorities in the following terms:

“Dear Mr. President, Dear Prime Minister – our countryman, we – mothers of Bukovina -, before you fall on your knees, help us get all the men back to Bukovina. … We are for peace and the future of Ukraine, please help”.

These latest protests in Chernivtsi are part of a growing movement of soldiers’ relatives against the war and demanding that the soldiers, conscript and reservists, be brought back from the front. The movement has spread to different regions, including Lviv, Kherson, MelitopolVolhynia, amongst others.

    Soldiers stay unwashed in Donbas for weeks, they don’t have drinking water, not saying about other needs. We don’t want to bury relatives send back in coffins, we choose to refuse dying for somebody else war games. Military take ppl away in the middle of the night, forcing kids to sign the papers which will send them to death!
