6:04 am | In eastern Ukraine, New York under fire from Russian fire
At four years old, the little boy already knows how to recognize the whistle of Russian missiles falling on New York.
"Here's one," said the boy calmly, a few seconds before the explosion of a building, not far from there, sounded.

0h45 | The difficult resumption of daily life in Kharkiv
Three women plant flowers for a composition on a roundabout in central Kharkiv. A few kilometers away, at the northern exit of the city, men are filling sandbags to set up a dam.
This double-image illustrates the life of Kharkiv, which tries to resume a normal daily life. The regional capital was one of the Ukrainian cities most affected by the war, suffering a several-day assault and fighting in its suburbs in late February and early March, then coming under regular shelling.
The noose around the city has loosened for a few days, but the war continues. Significant damage was inflicted on all infrastructure, and many residents have yet to return.
WAR NOTEBOOK | The Russian army retreats again
