‘I don’t really realise what’s happened… I feel like a stone’ – Ukrainian refugee

In Lviv, the city has functioned as somewhat of a safe haven for many of those fleeing the fighting. Some have now reached here from Mariupol.

We spoke to Ivan Stanislavskyi, a photographer who fled the city last week.

He had tried to leave earlier but was stopped twice by the Ukrainian army – who told him it was not safe.

We asked him about the horrors he’d experienced in the besieged city.
