‘Bang, bang’: Children live and play near Ukraine front line

Parents Dmytro Roslyakov, and Karyna Ponomarenko, sit with their daughter 5-year-old Anhelina, in a playground as air raids go off, in Kramatorsk, eastern Ukraine, Thursday, July 14, 2022. It’s well known that many of the residents of eastern Ukraine who refuse to heed authorities’ calls to flee are older ones. It’s jarring, then, to explore the streets of communities close to the front line and spot children. Unlike the adults who decide to stay, the children have their fate tied to the wishes of their parents. (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty)
