One year ago, the Ukraine civil war was the most discussed topic (especially in the aftermath of the downing of flight MH-17) among both market watchers and politicians (where the tit-for-tat escalation in European sanctions pressured the German economy so much the Bundesbank had no choice but to finally relent to Draghi's demands for European QE which in turn determined the outcome of the Third Greek bailout by crushing any Greek "market-moving" leverage).
Now, few remember that in the breakaway republic of Donetsk in east Ukraine there is still a war being waged: this conflict which has claimed thousands of innocent lives has already served its political purpose and has been swept far away from the front pages of western media.
Unfortunately for millions of people living in east Ukraine nothing has been resolved and every new day continues to be one filled with dread and fear just where death may come from next.
Nowhere is this seen better than in the following dramatic video clip released moments ago which captured a Ukraine artillery shell flying mid-air through a Donetsk residential region, just an instant before it strikes its target.
The dramatic moment can be seen 1 minute 37 seconds into the clip below.
