Ukraine: return to the Saltivka district in Kharkiv where the Russian bombs have stopped raining

Our reporters went in March 2022 to a residential area bombed day and night near Kharkiv, in northeastern Ukraine. A ghost district where only a handful of inhabitants, despite the terror, had chosen to stay. Their stories and their courage were very moving. The France 24 teams returned to Saltivka this fall to see the survivors. After the retreat of Russian forces in mid-May, residents began to rebuild their lives.
