The Wider Image: Elderly brothers eke out life among ruins of Ukraine war
Volodymyr Kovalyov, 77, pours himself a glass of horilka, a Ukrainian spirit, in the last room of his house that still has a roof, amid Russia's invasion of Ukraine, in the village of Posad-Pokrovske, northwest of the city of Kherson, Ukraine January 26, 2023. Volodymyr and his wife were in their house in October when it was hit by what they think was a tank shell. There is no central power or heating and the surrounding fields are heavily mined, making them unworkable. Yet the couple, along with Volodymyr's brother Stepan 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.
