As Ukraine marks the anniversary of the 2014 coup in Kiev that led to conflict in the east of the country, RT spoke to people in Donbass who see themselves as having been betrayed by their fellow countrymen.
Over 10,000 people have been killed in the bloody conflict in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, which started after the population there refused to accept the coup and proclaimed independence from Kiev.
“They consider us to be terrorists. You see, we are walking peacefully, like normal, simple people, why are we terrorists? They think we are, that’s why they don’t have any pity for us,” one local man told RT’s Murad Gazdiev.
