Boredom, loneliness plague Ukrainian youth near front line

The lights in just a few windows illuminate an otherwise dark apartment block as Roman Kovalenko, 19, left, visits his friend, Oleksandr Pruzhyna, 18, right, in Kramatorsk, Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine, Friday, Aug. 12, 2022. "It's a completely different feeling when you go outside. There is almost no one on the streets, I have the feeling of being in an apocalypse," said Pruzhyna, who lost his job at a barber shop after the invasion, and now spends most of his time at home playing computer games. "I feel like everything I was going to do became impossible, everything collapsed in an instant." (AP Photo/David Goldman)
