Maybe the only critical analysis of the new movie Donbass (Dir. Sergei Loznitsa) that you're gonna get, folks (in English, at least). This non-documentary, allegedly based on real events and YouTube videos, is set in the eastern regions of Ukraine (collectively referred to as Donbass) — which are currently fighting a war with the western regions of Ukraine (collectively referred to as Ukraine).

Separately, here's a short, independently made doc about every day life in Donbass (by Irina Lashkevich and Dan Levi) (Engl. subtitles): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NA242BxEArE
