Russia pressed on with its invasion of Ukraine through the weekend, and social media continued to prove its essential, grisly role in the documentation of 21st-century conflict. Defying Vladimir Putin’s increasingly bellicose rhetoric, Ukraine’s President Zelensky posted videos from the streets around Kyiv’s government district that appeared to galvanize Ukraine’s army of soldiers and citizens—as well as world opinion—in opposition to Russia’s assault. In this new compilation of recordings from Ukraine, surreal clips of tanks driving in urban traffic and gunfights near playgrounds filled social media feeds alongside ghastly footage of missile strikes, destruction, and panic as people fled for shelter below ground and across Ukraine’s western borders.

They of able body are at… Read more »
The sound of the sirens in one of the video clips made my heart drop into my stomach, and that’s a feeling I don’t easily get from videos. Something about it was so eerie, the echoing of the siren on what looked like a calm night. Makes me feel sick to my stomach. I wish my country was currently doing more to help, especially considering the pattern being repeated that is so similar to other wars. I’m only seventeen years old, so of course I’m “naive” (except I am actually quite cynical). Though, I am naive to the destruction of… Read more »
