In Donetsk, There Will Be Matzah Once Again

07-05-2019

News from the frontlines of eastern Ukraine’s five-year-old frozen war has long slipped from Western headlines, but for the people living in the region, daily reminders of the conflict’s existence abound. On the outskirts of Donetsk, a city of just under a million residents, the sounds of fighting—even the occasional mortar—can be heard, and though less frequent and nowhere near the ferocity it once was, it’s still there. Another reminder is the nightly military curfew, imposed by the government of the self-declared Donetsk People’s Republic, requiring all individuals to be off the streets between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
