Janina Coal Mine


 It is in Libiąż in Lesser Poland. It has been operating since 1907 and started mining in 1910 on the initiative of French investors. British prisoners of war were sent to work in that mine during the occupation, but prisoners from the Auschwitz concentration camp finally replaced them. Today the mine belongs to Tauron Wydobycie.

29.37 kilometers – at the time of writing this report, separating Kramatorsk, the temporary capital of the Donetsk Oblast, from the front line. One third of the 220,000 inhabitants remained. In the deserted city you can see mostly soldiers. They head to the front or return from it to rest for a while. The fate of Kramatorsk and eastern Ukraine depends on the outcome of fierce fighting. Military trucks and heavy equipment rush to nearby Bakhmut every day.
