In shattered Kharkiv, Ukrainian survivors struggle to hold on

KHARKIV, Ukraine — During lulls in Russian bombardment that turned much of northern Kharkiv into a landscape of gutted skyscrapers, shrapnel-strewn streets and burned-out cars, Tatyana Yevtukhova left the sub- floor of his apartment building to start a fire in what was once a playground.

Ms Yevtukhova, 63, who lives with her son Pasha and their cat Motik, has had no electricity or running water since her nine-storey building in the North Saltivka neighborhood of Kharkiv was first hit by artillery Russian on March 3. They’re alive because a shell went through his apartment and came out the other side, without exploding.
