“When Tsyrkuny was under occupation, there were Chechens, Buryats, and DPR [Donetsk People’s Republic] representatives who behaved extremely inhumanly, absolutely unscrupulously, and immorally. They took out everything from the houses, starting with household items, dishes, appliances, and washing machines. People tried to explain that if you do not have a centralized water supply, the washing machine will not work. They just took it as certain trophies, without even understanding the principle of operation of these devices,” — said Oleh Syniehubov, head of the Kharkiv regional military administration.

Almost all social institutions were destroyed in the village, including schools, hospitals, and administrative buildings, and shelling continues today. It was decided to add Tsirkuny to the list of settlements that will be rebuilt according to the “build back better” principle: “rebuild better than it was”. Then this decision was doubted, but finally, it was concluded that the village would remain in the government program.

This collection contains photographs of Tsyrkuny after the de-occupation, taken by the Kharkiv human rights group for the purpose of documentation.
