Ukraine’s War Diaries

Lives upended by war.

As the conflict enters its second year, we hear stories of some of the lives transformed by war. Maria Drovnenkova, from the BBC's Panorama, tells Victoria and Vitaliy about the Ukrainians whose video diaries captured the first year of the war.

We receive an update from 20-year-old student Maksym Lutsyk, who is now serving in Ukraine’s armed forces on the frontline in the east.

And Francis Scarr, from BBC Monitoring, joins us in the studio to tell us how the anniversary of the conflict was viewed in Russia last week.
