A child walks past a damaged building in the Oktyabrsky district of Donetsk. The self-styled Donetsk and next-door Luhansk "people's republics" broke away from central rule in 2014 after months of violent street protests in Kiev toppled Ukraine's Moscow-leaning president and propelled pro-Western nationalists to power.

A dog sits outside a damaged apartment block in the Oktyabrsky district of Donetsk. In this calm suburb of Donetsk, many people stood aloof of politics. But then fierce clashes broke out between Ukrainian government troops and pro-Russian separatists for control over the nearby Donetsk Airport.

A shrapnel damaged wall of a former military unit barracks stands in Donetsk. A glistening air hub of steel and glass, specially built for the UEFA Euro 2012 of which Donetsk was a venue, the local airport was levelled to the ground, and many of the buildings in Oktyabrsky shared its fate.

Disused furniture sits in an abandoned apartment inside a nine-storey block of flats in the Oktyabrsky district in Donetsk. Restored water and electricity supplies to local homes, with some households enjoying even gas supplies and heating, give a slight relief to some of the lucky locals as winter cold starts to bite.

A rooster stands inside a house owned by a local resident in the Oktyabrsky district in Donetsk. "I try to keep away from politics, I only care about my family," said Marina, aged 30. The woman, her husband and three children, one of whom is seriously ill, lost their house in 2014 when an artillery shell hit it. "With no money, we were left in the street, with absolutely nothing. Everything burned, nothing was left ... even spoons and forks were gone," she said.

Disused kitchenware sits inside an abandoned house, which was damaged by shelling not far from Donetsk airport. Marina's family changed several apartments, moving from one friend to another, before deciding that they would restore their house, using the bricks that had remained intact to build new walls. But they fast ran out of cash to buy construction materials. The fragile ceasefire agreed in 2015 is often shattered by outbursts of gunfire and explosions of shells.

Local resident Alexandra Nikolayevna, 68, sits in her house in Donetsk. Sometimes, student hostels accommodate the homeless. They include Alexandra Nikolayevna, 68, who survives with her several grandchildren at "University Hostel No.4" mainly due to handouts of humanitarian aid. The fourth year of this ordeal has failed to shatter her political views. "We must be only with Russia, we only hope for (Russian President Vladimir) Putin to take us under his wing," she repeats. "Anyway, everyone says it's Russian land."

People walk near the "Yunost" (Youth) concert hall which was damaged by shelling in central Donetsk. The feeling of relative normalcy which prevails in most parts of Donetsk, dissipates when you realise the city centre is just slightly more than 10 km (6.3 miles) from the frontline.
