The reality of war. As mainstream media channels romanticise the war in Ukraine with talk of heroism and impossible feats, the reality on the ground is far from romantic.
Below is video footage from outside the village of Kuzemovka, in the Svatovsky region.
The area had just been taken by Russian forces after an artillery bombardment.
Dead Ukrainian soldiers lie scattered around the desolate, post-apocalyptic battle-field. The trunks of hundreds of trees remain standing, but they are stripped of every branch.
This is the reality of war that corporate media and Western governments do not want the public to see.
It is estimated up to 250,000 soldiers have died fighting for Ukraine since Russian troops crossed the Ukrainian border last year.
