Forró’s book, Donbass. A honeymoon Suite in Hotel War features exceptional reporting, which shows how hybrid wars are conducted in the countries of the former Soviet Union. The main characters are the Georgian Mamuka who came to Donbass to fight against Russia, the Czech Jura who came to fight for Russia, and the Ukrainian woman Líza who left her beloved Luhansk with her children to get away from war.
