Two Canadian writers have returned from a reporting mission to eastern Ukraine. Roger Annis and Halyna Mokrushyna were part of a four-day reporting tour to the city of Donetsk and the countryside to the east of the city from April 14 to 18. The tour was organized by Europa Objektiv, an initiative of citizens in Russia and Germany working to provide information about the war in eastern Ukraine to foreign writers and journalists.
The tour group comprised writers and filmmakers from Canada, the United States, Italy, Holland, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. It met with leaders of the Donetsk Peoples Republic, with academics and with human rights and civil activists.
