I’m in Mariinka, Ukraine. Right now, as I type these words (we have cell signal), I am watching tracers cut across the night sky. There is the constant flash and wall shaking boom of artillery, the rattle of machine gun and small arms fire. The Ukrainian soldiers say it’s a normal night. I can definitively say what it is not–a cease-fire.
