Nadiya and Yuriy Zayika’s peaceful life in Moshchun was turned on its head by Russia’s invasion.

The couple returned to the village just outside Kyiv on April 22 to find their home, which they had once shared with their son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren, reduced to rubble and ash.

For now, the couple and their family are being hosted by a local priest, but they hope to rebuild their home on the same plot of scorched land.
