Varvara Arkhipovna, age 81, lives alone in Katerinovka, the war-torn Lugansk region of Ukraine, shown in 2017. The village, which has a population of less than three hundred people, is exposed to the sniper fire as the contact line lies just over the hill a few kilometers away. Varvara lives with a puppy that was recently given to her by a health worker to improve her mental health as she suffers from depression and high blood pressure. Her family lives in Pervomaisk on the other side of the front line. She hasn’t been able to see her three grandchildren in four years, even though they live only three kilometers away.
