WHAT IS GOING ON IN UKRAINE BY PLACE TV
Ukraine has been all over the news lately, on all levels of society (at least in Europe) people are talking about the Russian build-up of troops, machinery, and even blood at the borders. Media coverage from most western outlets has been focused on the (high) possibility of a conflict with the US president, leading the way with his rhetoric. Those paying close attention in recent days though have noticed a push back on the coverage from the Ukrainian side, arguing that the coverage does not accurately depict the situation on the ground. We don’t know where the truth lies exactly but we do know some skaters currently living in Ukraine, in Kharkiv to be exact. We contacted Sasha Groshevoy, who you have seen on our channels multiple times, and spoke to him about the current situation and the minds of the people around him in his city. FYI, Kharkiv is the closest big city to the border with Russia, so tensions are real. Anyway let’s start with this Long Read and try to answer the question: What is going on in Ukraine?
