Soldiers alert on Donbas frontline as tense-calm reigns in Ukrainian border town

Conflicts A- A A+

There is a tense calm in eastern Ukraine's Donbas region, with its giant neighbor Russia just across the border, but the town of Stanytsia Luhanska looks like a ghost town, with ruined buildings, shattered windowpanes, and scattered household goods, including children's toys, Yeni Safak reports.

As a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine looms ominously, Anadolu Agency traveled to a section of the front line in the conflict-ridden Donbas region, a region where tens of thousands have already died, and where Ukrainian soldiers are now girding for a worse crisis.

Since 2014, Stanytsia Luhanska has been a battleground, with clashes between the Ukrainian army and pro-Russian separatists.

The pro-Russia separatists fired mortar shots in late 2021, damaging some of the buildings and houses in the town and forcing the residents to flee to protect themselves.

For the time being, there are no clashes, and Ukrainian forces from the 79th Air Assault Brigade patrol the region on a regular basis, using binoculars to observe the separatists' movements.

At a time when hostilities between Moscow and the West are escalating, attention is focused on events on the Ukrainian-Russian border as well as the front line.

Diplomatic efforts are ongoing to prevent the situation sparking into a war, and military deployments across the border are being closely monitored by the international community.
