Paperback. 400 pp.
In this collection of dispatches, Stanislav Aseyev attempts to understand the reasons behind the success of Russian propaganda among the residents of the industrial region of Donbas. For the first time, an inside account shows the toll on real human lives and civic freedoms that citizens continue to suffer in Russia's hybrid war on its territory.
Stanislav Aseyev is a Donetsk-born Ukrainian writer and journalist. He is the author of a collection of poetry, a play, and a novel. Under the pen name Stanislav Vasin, he published short reports in Ukrainian press about the situation on the ground following the outbreak of Russian-sponsored military hostilities in Donbas. Arrested and unlawfully imprisoned by separatist militia forces for "extremism" and "spying," Aseyev was held captive and subjected to mistreatment and intermittent torture for over two and a half years. In 2021, he was awarded the prestigious Taras Shevchenko National Prize for In Isolation.
