Civilian Suffering on Ukraine’s Front Line

Informative video on the ordeal endured by people crossing the front line and on-going struggle of those having fled the conflict. For the elderly and the likes of 15 year old Vlada, disabled with Spina Bifida, each day brings fresh challenges. 

Video features Filippo Grandi, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Outside the Russian occupied town of Horlivka in Ukraine’s Donetsk Oblast (province), he visited the much used Ukrainian checkpoint at Maiorsk and a facility for disabled people displaced by the fighting.
