The Kurds is one of the world’s largest nations that has no own state. The areas inhabited by them are divided among four countries – Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey. And if in the three former countries the Kurdish people do have their own autonomy, Turkey does not recognize them as a nation at all. As the Kurds cannot accept it, they have been fighting for independence for decades. The conflict has recently flared up.
Journalists Siarhei Marchyk and Konrad Zagórski made a report from Turkish Kurdistan, where Ankara is squashing the uprising with the help of tanks and helicopters.
