This Ukrainian Story
Desna, Kiev
By Felipe Paiva
05 Oct 2014

During the Ukranian Uprising in 2013 a group called Pravi Sector gained recognition for their bravery and violence against Viktor Yanukovich's riot police. Now they are a parallel militia that fights against insurgency in eastern Ukraine. They only count on donations from supporters and have few training camps. This collection portraits a training unit in Desna, north of Kiev.
