* ■Author’s comment *
This book is all about the 1,000 days of reporting I did after I became a freelance journalist and moved to the Netherlands.
The Russian military’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 caused a tectonic shift that disrupted the post-Cold War era order, and a huge “torrent” of people, goods, money, and information began. Routes across borders that were not on the map opened up one after another.

Where is this flow coming from and where is it going? I traveled a total of 30,000 km to cover Ukraine, the surrounding European countries, the Mediterranean Sea, and North Africa.
A sub-zero forest where migrants and refugees who have been turned into “weapons” wander. The “Street of Death” in Bucha, Ukraine, is full of bodies. The dark Mediterranean where an “iron ship” floats. SNS full of false information, unrecognized countries full of contrary information… The new route and its surroundings were filled with countless bodies and nameless graves.
Run away, stay, or go back? This book contains the words of about 600 people I interviewed, and their life-threatening choices.
I believe this is a message entrusted to us in Japan, who have passports that allow us to enter most countries around the world without a visa and enjoy the freedom and security of living without having to cross borders.

A Kurdish family is released into a bitterly cold forest as an “immigration weapon,” African people sail to the Mediterranean Sea in a ship that looks like an iron coffin, young Ukrainian men disappear into the snowy mountains after evading military draft… A first-class on-the-ground report that visualizes the reality of the “New World” with overwhelming reporting power while traveling back and forth to the “parallel world” that has appeared in Europe, where order is collapsing.
