Chernihiv picks up pieces after Russian withdrawal


Smashed houses, charred rubble and destroyed military equipment litter the streets of the Ukrainian town of Chernihiv: evidence of the prolonged and fierce fighting that engulfed this town, 110 km northeast of kyiv, when Russian forces attacked at the start of the conflict. Now that they’re gone, the locals emerge, scavenging the ruins. A resident, who had fought for the Soviet army in Afghanistan, recounted how the troops ransacking his house discovered his old uniform, with his medals, and taunted him. The Russians withdrew in early April as part of a redeployment of forces. (April 18)
