Q&A with journalist and author Laura Starink about the consequences of the pro-Russia riots that took place in 2014 in Donetsk and the rest of East Ukraine.

After the film we will talk to journalist and author Laura Starink about the consequences of the pro-Russia riots that took place in 2014 in Donetsk and the rest of East Ukraine. Starink visits Ukraine frequently and follows the constant changing situation. In her latest book De schaduw van de grote broer (2015) she wrote about the developments in Ukraine and the new power conflict between Poetin and the West. 

In 2014 in Donetsk the pro-Russia separatists founded the Donetsk People’s Republic to separate from Ukraine. Bahram Sadeghi, who visited East Ukraine a few times recently, interviews Laura Starink about her vision on the situation in Donetsk and the rest of East Ukraine. They will talk about the political, social and economic changes caused by the revolution in Ukraine.
