crime world Episode 85: Fionnan Sheahan's front-line views of devastation on families in the Ukraine
A haunting border crossing from Ukraine. People just like us leaving behind everything they know and everyone they love. And an unpredictable dictator with his finger on the nuclear button.
So what is it like to stand and witness this brutal history in the making and to see the faces of women and children set in fear in the freezing temperatures of a land not too unlike our own.
Today I’m talking to Irish Independent Ireland Editor Fionnan Sheahan who is just back from the Ukraine/Polish border where he saw first hand the never ending lines of human misery caused by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He tells me of a refugee crises like no other and of a population of middle class, educated families displaced forever by a neighbour with a dark soul.
