Someone else diary by Aleksandr Tkachenko
Doc is a Ukrainian artist and filmmaker. His full name is Dmytro Dokunov. In recent years he has lived in the countryside, where he built an eco-village, sang, traveled and immersed himself in digital art. A summons from the military recruiting office left him with a choice between joining the army or fleeing mobilization. Despite moral dilemmas, he took up the challenge and joined the ranks of his homeland defenders. He does not part with the camera on his smartphone and films everything that happens to him and around him, desperately trying to hold on to his humanity. Doc was assigned to the airborne. He trained for four months at a paratroop training camp, then saw the war up close, on the front lines near Kherson. His unit engaged in fierce front-line combat, spending nights in the trenches under fire. Explosions, people dying, dozens getting injured, loss of the loved ones, direct clashes with the enemy... How will these traumatic experiences change Doc's sensitive soul?
