In war-ravaged eastern Ukraine, residents see little respite

A mother carries her baby on September 5, 2014 in the basement of an high school in Yasinuvata, in the outskirts of Donetsk, where she has been sheltering with other people for the past monthAfter weeks holed up in a dank college basement, residents of the small eastern Ukrainian town of Yasinuvata say they have little faith that the ceasefire declared Friday will actually halt the fighting that has devastated their lives. Just as the truce between Ukraine and pro-Russian rebels was being announced, terrified civilians rushed to a shelter as the roar of bombardments sounded nearby. “No electricity… no lights, look how people live here,” said Natalia as she gave a tour of the site where residents have been camped out for about two months, the stench strong in the airless basement. Natalia said it was the pro-Kremlin separatists fighting back after a bombardment by Ukrainian forces about two hours earlier.
