The Ukrainian city that's been attacked since day one where defiant residents hide underground

There is no place in this world that has been left unexplored.

It’s the same street after street – destroyed buildings and bomb craters.

Severodonetsk, a frontline Ukrainian town, is a target of the Russian forces.

It’s been under attack ever since the beginning of this invasion.

Russia strikes a ‘hangar filled with European/US weapons’ – live updates

People here live on handouts. There is no running water or power.

Many have fled and many are still there, but they only return to their basements after the shelling ceases. They are scared and desperate.

Valentina, 82 leads me back into darkness. This cold and damp place has been my home for over two months.

A torch is her only light source. It is difficult to imagine how she manages to find her feet on uneven ground day after day.

She is embarrassed as she lifts the curtain, and later tells me that she doesn’t want me to see where she sleeps because it’s too messy.

A corner has a bed made from scraps of fabric and some possessions are scattered about.

This cramped space is home to more than 20 people, but there is hope.

Lyubana, another subterranean resident, believes that Ukraine’s forces can win what she views as a battle of good against evil.

“No, I don’t believe we have been forgotten. I believe that we must do our best to survive. She said that she doesn’t believe we have been abandoned. “I don’t feel like we’ve lost our way – I believe everything will be okay.”

They must keep what they eat in a shopping cart.

You might think that a city would crumble in the face all of this, but the resilience shown here is amazing.

The Ukrainian flag proudly flies at the main police station.

This building has been repeatedly targeted, but resistance is strong.

Frontline in Donbas fighting

Oleh Hryhorov (Chief of Police in the Luhansk Region), takes me up to the second story to inspect the damage.

He wants the whole world to see what Russia is doing for his country.

They are still operating despite being destroyed by an air attack and carrying out what is now a humanitarian mission.

“Our job is to help the people in this area. He said that they provide food, medicine, and evacuation. Now, it is the responsibility of the police to help the people. It’s dangerous work.

US instructs allies to move “heaven and Earth” to send more weapons

This city is racked with unrelenting cruelty.

The sound of fighting grows closer as we make our way to the only hospital that is still in operation.

The medics are doing their best to help. They treat war wounds and other routine emergencies.

People aren’t immune to getting sick just because there is shooting outside.

All patients are treated in the corridors away from any windows that have been damaged by shells. This hospital has been attacked more than twenty times.

Lyubov Pavlivna, despite being in a state of shock after suffering shrapnel wounds, is determined and has this message to Vladimir Putin.

“I want them all to die. They should not be near me, I don’t want them. They are destroying our young men, but they also send their own to death.

We were then notified by the medics that we had received bad news.

The hospital was shelled again.

This is yet another reminder of Russia’s brutal war on the innocent.

People here are afraid that this indiscriminate violence only gets worse.
