Ukraine’s Frontline Rescuers

December 15, 2022 – Since the invasion of Ukraine in February, what constitutes as ‘victory’ in Russia’s war has changed for Vladimir Putin, as battlefield failures mount across the country. Gaining ground in the Donbass and across Eastern Ukraine is all the more important to Moscow. It’s where the bloodiest battles have been fought. The communities who live next to the frontline are caught in the crossfire, with constant shelling and increasingly difficult conditions, as power outtages increase and the temperature drops as winter sets in. Filmmaker Jack Losh spent two weeks with the firefighters of Toretsk, in Donbass, close to the line of Russian control. They’ve become reluctant experts in battlefield first aid, and the delicate task of negotiating with people who don’t want to leave their homes. You may find some of the images in this report upsetting.

January 18, 2023 – This is a most suspenseful documentary film. It was made in 2022 by famous Ukrainian director Lubomir Levitski.

Real participants of that operation speak their story to the camera, so that the whole world would learn about the incredible feat and creative approach of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in rescuing civilians. The real footage taken by drones during this operation was handed over to Lubomir by the military of the 93rd Brigade “Holodny Yar”. Thirty minutes of intense real-time rescue operation is impossible to forget. The director managed to combine documentary with an incredibly interesting artistic approach in telling this story.
