A Bunker With A View

A fighting position on the Ukrainian frontline looking out onto the Village of Marinka. An odd scene of natural beauty sitting in the centre of an otherwise grim and bitter conflict. Since the start of the war, this critical building which was once a community center has changed hands many times – between Ukrainian and Separatist forces.
