15 Salvation Army shelter in Red Army, a post-apocalyptic city in eastern Ukraine.
It was built for people displaced by the war.
“They’re like a human prison,” the shelter’s owner told Polygon.
“A little bit like a military camp.
A lot like the Nazi concentration camps.”
The Salvation Army offers free housing, free food, and food parcels to those displaced by conflict.
But some people in the Red Forest say it’s not enough.
“I’m just happy to be alive, but this is just a disaster,” said a woman in her 60s who gave her name as Oksana.
“The Red Army is not the enemy.
I don’t want to die.
The Red Army came to save me.”
She and others say they’re fed up with the system and are organizing for a “rescue mission” to get the Red army out of their area.
“You can’t say the Red Empire is the enemy, because it’s just a monster,” she said.
“If you want to save a country, you have to save its people.”
For months, residents of the city of Krasnodar have been camped out in tents and tents on the outskirts of the town.
The city was once home to millions of Ukrainians, many of them working in the construction industry.
But the Red forces moved in during the conflict and now the city is home to a few thousand people, including many children, according to a Human Rights Watch report.
Residents say that’s not what it used to be.
They say the army, which they describe as Russian troops, has forcibly displaced residents and displaced families.
The military has been occupying the city since 2014, and it has continued to use the area as a base for its operations.
In May, the Red military used bulldozers to clear a road leading to the city.
On Tuesday, Human Rights WATCH said that the Red Military Center was using the area to “harass civilians and collect their belongings.”
In the days leading up to Tuesday’s bulldozing, the city’s inhabitants were able to leave tents.
But many others were not able to, and a group of people who remained camped in tents were evacuated from the city on Wednesday morning.
Residents are worried about what could happen if they try to leave.
“We can’t leave,” said Krasna Vasilchyn, a 27-year-old from the eastern city of Donetsk.
“It’s like we’re stuck in a prison.
It’s just so dangerous.”
The Red army has used other tactics to occupy Krasnovodar in recent months.
It has reportedly occupied several smaller villages in the region.
In November, the Ukrainian government announced that it was giving $100 million to the families of civilians who fled to Krasnyi Dolgorodsk, a city in the Russian-speaking region of Donetsk, to help rebuild homes and livelihoods.
A month later, in February, a Russian army convoy of around 20 military trucks came into the city and blocked off a road to evacuate residents who had gathered at a local hospital, according the AP news agency.
In late February, the Russian military began shelling the city, prompting the government to close the roads to Korsun and evacuate residents to nearby camps.
But there’s no sign of that happening.
“What happened was a complete disaster,” a resident who was evacuated told Polygons.
“Everything was destroyed.”
A group of men, women, and children gathered on a street in Krasniysk on February 7, 2017.
Many of the residents in the city were displaced by war and have been forced to leave their homes.
They are waiting for a convoy of Russian military vehicles to come to Kansa, an hour away from the Red City.
The convoy has not arrived yet.
The residents are worried that the army will start using the city as a staging ground for more raids.
“This is just another reason to fight,” a woman said.
She and a woman who identified herself as a local resident were at the shelter Tuesday morning, but the group had not arrived by Wednesday morning, so they were left in the dark.
“There’s a lot of people here, but we need a lot more help,” she added.
A Ukrainian government official who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the situation told Polyogons that the city has been “completely under siege” for months, but that the government has not done anything to help the residents.
He said the government had provided a $20 million humanitarian aid package for Krasnei Dolgorsk, which the city residents were supposed to receive.
The government has also provided $10 million in loans to the Red Armed Forces, which are supposed to provide humanitarian aid to residents of Korsan, the official said.
The Krasnikova family is the only one left in Korsnovod, and they are desperate.
They’re looking for any kind of aid
