This picturesque town, just 70km from the border with Belarus, is rebuilding from six weeks of intense shelling in the first weeks of Russia’s war. We visit school #35, think tank Ukrainian Prism and NGO Eco-Misto.

Chernivtsi

Sitting just 40km from the border with Romania and having suffered no direct air strikes so far, Chernivtsi is one of the cities seen as a safe haven for many. We meet writer Kate Tsurkan and urban planner Bohdan Staryk for a snapshot of the city.
