The funeral of Denis Sosnenko, who died while volunteering to collect bodies from the battlefields

With the faint sound of shells firing to the south and east of the front line, people knelt in front of the slowly passing vans and threw roses. When the car stopped and the back door opened to reveal a wooden coffin, he began to sob.

Lyudmila Sosnenko hugged her daughter and exclaimed: “My son! Why?”
