From the archive: Donetsk shelter

A local resident sits in a bomb shelter in the basement of a destroyed hospital in Kievsky District in Donetsk on October 21st, 2016.

Kievsky was at the time one of the areas most affected by the fierce fight between DNR rebels and the Ukrainian military over the control of the city airport.

Throughout Donetsk, there were people living in very basic shelters and under constant shellfire for several months. Many of them without electricity, humanitarian aid or a chance to move to safer areas.
