After the incident involving Ukraine and Russia on November 25, 2018, when Russia physically interrupted the passage of Ukrainian ships across the Kerch Strait, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was able to approve the martial law on November 26 of the same year.
On the occasion of martial law I was in Spain preparing for a trip to the Middle East, and as I was know with the news, I quickly scheduled a trip to Ukraine the next week.
While waiting for the documentation needed to travel where the conflict was focused, I set out to travel around the country and show how society was reacting to a threat of conflict near the time of the presidential election.
Because it was a not planned trip I had many bureaucratic problems, especially with regard to authorizations that are granted to members of the press, that after a month and many phone calls was solved.
In January 2019 I obtained the authorization to stay with Ukrainian military personnel who were at the front line of the conflict and I was able to successfully complete my experience in Ukraine and returning to Spain.
