              A fire-resistant brick heats on the stove in Larysa Shevtsova's home in in Kherson, Ukraine as the family tries to warm the house on Nov. 26, 2022. When the rectangular block was hot enough, it was carried carefully into the living room and set on top of a Soviet-era space heater that no longer worked. Shevtsova, her husband and two sons, one of them three years old, huddled around the brick for warmth that would last for about 30 minutes. “We use this method to heat the room,” Shevtsova said. “Before that we just froze.” (AP Photo/Sam Mednick)
