ZAITSEVE, Ukraine 
The Wider Image: In shadow of war, Ukrainians seek to vote for peace 
There are not many people left in Zaitseve, a village on the front line that divides Ukraine. Destruction and damage are widespread after five years of conflict over eastern Ukraine between government forces and Russian-backed separatists. Around 13,000 people have been killed, a quarter of them civilians, according to the United Nations Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine. Troops are stationed in trenches outside Zaitseve and government trucks risk rebel fire to bring bread, coal, firewood and other goods along a dirt road. Employees from the state-run Oschadbank travel by armoured truck to a nearby checkpoint, to allow residents on both sides of the conflict to withdraw money. Some six hundred kilometres (400 miles) away in Kiev, President Petro Poroshenko has made standing up to Russia a central thrust of what has become a tough political battle for reelection. Voters say the conflict is the single biggest issue facing the country but struggle to identify who can best end it. REUTERS/Gleb Garanich SEARCH "ELECTION WAR" FOR THIS STORY.
