Yuri Baikov, 69, cuts a hole to take water from frozen river at his small farm situated in a forest near the village of Yukhovichi, Belarus, February 7, 2018. Yuri and his wife have lived for more than a quarter of a century in a primitive hut in a forest. They used to live in Yukhovichi, nearest village, as farmers, keeping cows and poultry. But dwelling near other people did not suit them. "We cannot leave our animals and birds even for a day - and we don't want to," Yuri said.
