I got to thinking while I was drawing that last panel, that you don't need an apocalypse to look post-apocalyptic. This was just bad road repair, then no road repair, and a single spring and part of a summer with no one to take care of the fields. Probably run off by Bohdan's guys.
And what's really kinda scary is that it only takes five hundred to about two thousand people to make up an insurgency strong enough to destabilize a country for decades.* Bohdan may not have that many supporters out of the country as a whole, but he doesn't NEED that many.
