Next stop Russia for those fleeing rebel-held Donetsk

A woman and a girl cry as they sit in a bus bound for Russia on July 16, 2014 in DonetskWhen young mother Natasha woke up to find her quiet suburb suddenly on the frontline of fighting between Ukrainian troops and pro-Moscow rebels — she knew it was time to pack up her three kids and get out. Now they’re waiting anxiously in line with over a hundred others, mainly women, children and elderly from around the main rebel-held city of Donetsk for a bus put on by the separatist authorities to ferry them across the border to Russia. “We left everything and fled in a hurry as they were bombarding the town,” Natasha, a resident of the town of Krasnogorivka just outside Donetsk, told AFP. Kiev and the West blame Moscow for fuelling the fighting but those leaving the rebels’ self-proclaimed “Donetsk People’s Republic” say that joining the thousands of others who have already headed across the border into Russia is their only hope.
