Some pictures showing what’s left of Luhansk airport. Situated a few kilometers outside the city, like its sister airport in Donetsk, it has been all but obliterated by Russian artillery. After a long and extremely bloody defence by paratroopers, Ukrainian forces withdrew on Sept 1st 2014. Pounded relentlessly by Grad rockets and all forms of artillery, there was simply nothing left to defend.
