“Paris-Istanbul. Istanbul-Moscow. A 24-hour stop in Moscow, at a friend of Nico’s. The train from Moscow to Rostov-on-Don. Sixteen hours in a carriage packed with Russian families returning home. There are no more flights allowed to the Rostov Oblast. Russian and Ukrainian jets fire a lot of missiles… I spend four hours in a cage at the Russian border, waiting for the Donetsk Republic press service to allow me to pass. […] We enter the city further. The cannonade is getting closer, the front must be 3 km away and we hear the shells whistling. The Russians want to finish off the presumed Nazis of the Azov battalion, the ultra-nationalist Ukrainians who are the last to defend the town. They are based in the Azovstal steelworks, near the port, and conduct guerrilla warfare from there. […] Pavel, the head of military security for the army of the Donbass republic, drives at breakneck speed along the dismembered avenues of Marioupol. Here, a column of burnt-out buses rolls across the blackened asphalt. A disarticulated tank lies rusty. Pavel never says where we are going—it is always a surprise. […] Mariupol is the Camerone of the Ukrainians: the fall is imminent, but, despite everything, its resistance is a symbol.”
