Mines from drones

What mines look like from a bird's eye view: they are often large, very extensive, impressive plants, where you can see shaft towers, lifts, shaft head buildings, other mine buildings, but also, for example, mining heaps. Although they are underground, they leave all their facilities on the surface, which is best shown from a drone flight. In this way, we recorded 71 mines: those still open, but also former mines, where shopping centers, museums, cultural centers, other monuments and even climbing centers are currently located.

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.
