The deep-sounding booms of artillery and tank fire filled the air.

Experts and observers thought that this city would fall to Russia because it was only 30 kilometres from the Russian border. But their famous military has been kept on Kharkiv’s northern outskirts, and we were granted access to this suburban frontier.

We were taken by the Ukrainian Army to a camp for children, complete with wooden cabins and towers resembling fantasy. However, we found the grounds littered with exploding shells.

“The shelling can be really chaotic, they land there and there,” stated our military guide who declined to be identified.

Doc, a soldier who was wiring up landmines during the bombardment, was found by us. He said that he had discovered cover in the basement of a nearby maintenance shed.

“It was scary, it was deafening, but the basement protected me. He said, “I can’t express my feelings in words, my fear about my family.”

“Why are they sending rockets and shells here?” I was curious.

“They don’t care, they send it wherever they want. He replied, “They don’t even have the option to choose anymore.”

We needed shelter again a few minutes later. Our guide was alarm by the sound of rockets and we ran for shelter in the maintenance shed.

There are signs of war everywhere, including the remains of a Russian armoured columns littering the trees.

This is an indication of what the Ukrainians were able to accomplish against a stronger and more well-equipped foe.

We were shown the bodies of five Russian servicemen, in a shocking display of gritted and determined determination, outside a station in a northern suburb.

Danylo Ishchenko, a Ukrainian Army captain claimed that the Russians refused to repatriate these bodies.

“Our commanders advised (the Russians) that you should return these bodies. They (said) that they don’t require it.”

Although the battle has slowed down, it is not over. Everyone in this city knows that. The northern suburbs of Kharkiv are likely to remain a battlefield for many weeks or months.
