Taking into account the current situation in Ukraine, it seems important to me to contextualize the moment in which I recorded these images that you are about to see.
I was there on a trip at the beginning of February 2022, a few weeks before the war broke out.
I finished editing this series at the end of March 2022, and it seemed appropriate to record an intro explaining that the situation in which I recorded the video, doesn’t match the current reality of the country.
Even with those, it took me almost nine months to decide to upload this series about Chernobyl.
If I’ve finally decided to publish it, it has been because the purpose of these videos is informative (although logically there are personal comments, since it’s a vlog).
My intention was and still is to show you my journey and explain from first-hand experience what happened during the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe, while showing the state of the exclusion zone.
This motivation is still valid despite the horror that is being experienced right now in the country.
I feel that showing the culture and history of a country is something inherently positive and that I have to be faithful to those motivations that I had when I recorded it, above the fear of creating controversy.
A follower left me a thought-provoking comment the other day, describing my feelings about it: “Now we are seeing and feeling Ukraine with a lot of pain, suffering, and fear.
When we think of Ukraine, we do so with negative thoughts due to the current problem.
And I think that the country also deserves to be looked at through the eyes of love, especially in these moments of so much darkness…
There will be people who don’t like to stop looking at the bad for a few moments, but there will be other people for whom It will be an act of inspiration and positivity, balance and love.”
(Thank you, Ali, for your words 🙏)
I’ve decided not to monetize this video, for obvious reasons.
I have also decided not to include the word “Ukraine” in the title because in no way do I want the algorithm to index it in relation to the events that are happening right now.
In fact, I have consciously put a rather bland title so as not to fall for the clickbait.
This is what I’ve inside.
It is a complex subject, but I hope I have explained myself.
As always, thanks for listening and understanding me with empathy and assertiveness, 🙂 I’ll upload the second part next week.
If you want to open a debate in the comments, I’ll read you ❤️
