A photograph lies on the floor in a house which was damaged by fighting in the town of Debaltseve February 25, 2015. Fighting over the railway hub of Debaltseve intensified in the days following a ceasefire deal meant to have taken effect on Feb. 15. Rebels who had encircled the town launched a massive assault, routing all Ukrainian forces by Feb. 18. The battle for the town caught civilians in the crossfire on a scale not yet seen in the war that has killed nearly 6,000 people. Most residential buildings in the town have been damaged by shelling or are burnt out. Picture taken February 25. REUTERS/Baz Ratner (UKRAINE - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST CONFLICT MILITARY SOCIETY)
