The Sense of War is an ongoing documentary project about war without an official status or recognition which gains momentum right in the middle of Europe, in Ukraine.

In early April 2014, the crisis in eastern Ukraine turned violent between Russian-backed separatists and Ukrainian officials in Donetsk and Luhansk area, home to 15 percent of the nation’s population.

The violence has left at least 2,877 soldiers killed since the start of the anti-terrorist operation Ukrainian Security Service reported. Moreover, some 6,500 civilians have been killed and almost 10,000 wounded as the United Nations estimated. Over a million people were forced to leave their homes due to shelling.
