Brian Milakovsky has been living in Ukraine and Russia since 2009. He has worked on both ecological and humanitarian issues. Today he lives in Luhansk Oblast in the Donbass region, where he works in an aid organization. He occasionally writes about his impressions in the Donbas. His most recent article is “The Church: Caught Between Russia and Ukraine” for the Fair Observer.
