Desperately sad story from just outside Kyiv, about a woman called Iryna whose son was killed by Russian soldiers. We were the first outsiders she'd seen since the Russians left her village on Friday. Shot and edited by @leedurant.

I was in primary school (Icons passim) at the same time as the narrator and reporter in the report above. It shouldn't, but it does make the tragedy resonate more with me. Human nature I guess. Similar to the way Rod M talking about his time in the Donbas can make me feel more connected with Ukraine.
