The Wider Image: Elderly brothers eke out life among ruins of Ukraine war
Tetyana Kovalyova, 79, whose house was destroyed during months of Russian occupation, opens the door of the basement where she and her husband Stepan, 80, now live, amid Russia's invasion of Ukraine, in the village of Posad-Pokrovske, northwest of the city of Kherson, Ukraine January 25, 2023. There is no central power or heating and the surrounding fields are heavily mined, making them unworkable. Yet the couple, along with Stepan's brother Volodymyr and his wife who live nearby, has decided to stay in the isolated farming village to live out their days in the place they know best.
