As the situation in eastern Ukraine heats up, DW looks at what people on the ground - reporters and residents - are saying. With the help of social media platforms, DW's editors put together a picture of the crisis.
The ongoing crisis in Ukraine is a trending topic on social media in Germany, Europe and around the world. But it's hard to get an accurate picture of what's really happening. Too many conflicting reports and rumors - and too much unverified information. With propaganda thrown into the equation, it's hard to know who to follow and who to believe.
DW's social media editors have curated a list of reporters, NGO's, human rights watchdogs and citizen bloggers to help provide a more comprehensive view of the situation in eastern Ukraine. Through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and other available social media resources, we've put together a picture of what people are experiencing in Slovyansk. We admit they are subjective views and we cannot verify everything, but it is genuine and from people on the ground.
