Video of a drive through the shattered remnants of Bakhmut. Just as life will spring from a carcass, so is foliage growing in the corpse of this grubby industrial city. This is the face of war, an imperial war fought to seize territory from others. Most of the more than 70,000 people who lived in Bakhmut before the war have fled or been killed, and most of the structures in the city are damaged beyond repair. The greenery merely conceals the destruction, the evidence of lives irrevocably changed or snuffed out.
