Donbass Voices 2 Dr Iry Bell 'I was in Maidan Square' Donbass medical doctor now a refugee in London
Dr Iry Bell was born in the Donbass and in the Maidan Square, Kiev for the protest and coup-detat in February 2014. She believes the protests were led from outside Ukraine, by the EU and the US and have created a tragedy for her country. As she has a child she felt she had to flee the Donbass war zone despite being a medical doctor whose skills would be needed there. She wants to see an immdiate end to the fighting, a genuine peace agreement as soon as possible.

Russia denies any plan to attack its neighbour, but it has threatened unspecified “military-technical” action unless it receives sweeping security guarantees, including a promise that Ukraine will never join NATO.
Putin delivered a long, televised address that ended with his announcement, delving into history as far back as the Ottoman empire and as recent as the tensions over NATO’s eastward expansion – a key irritant for Moscow in the present crisis.
“I deem it necessary to make a decision that should have been made a long time ago – to immediately recognise the independence and sovereignty of the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Luhansk People’s Republic,” Putin said....
