Volunteers from the organisation Vostok SOS helped evacuate Ukrainians in need of specialised care from the Donbas region - which has sustained heavy shelling over the past few days.

Russian attacks laid down a curtain of fire Tuesday across areas of eastern Ukraine where pockets of resistance are denying Moscow full military control of the region, almost four months after the Kremlin unleashed its invasion.

With many buildings in the region flattened, volunteers focused their work on the vulnerable – evacuating to safety four people in need of specialised care.
