After Russian forces left Ukraine’s northeastern city of Kharkiv, residents started to piece their lives back together. In March, our reporters filmed in the bombed-out neighbourhood of Saltivka, a residential area which had been shelled day and night. Most inhabitants fled, although a few terrified, isolated and yet defiant locals remained. Their stories deeply moved many of our viewers. This autumn, FRANCE 24 returned to Saltivka to see how the survivors were getting on.
