Civilians in areas of Ukraine continue to live inside their bombed-out homes, where they struggle under difficult and dangerous conditions.
These civilians live inside the damaged buildings, deprived of electricity and gas services, while the advent of winter and low temperatures exacerbate their suffering.
Residents of the Horynka region are among these Ukrainian civilians, who continue to live inside their homes located in buildings that have been heavily bombed.
The residents of the area depend on food, drink and humanitarian aid distributed by relief organizations to survive.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Nadia Vasilenko, 71, said that she has been living for months in her house, which is located in a 5-storey building.
She added that the Russian air raids hit the building that houses her house, causing her severe damage that is about to make her a trace after an eye.
The Ukrainian citizen was forced to live for 10 days in the shelter with her neighbors, after the start of the war in late February.
By March 2022, the building that houses Vasilenko’s house was hit by missiles and aircraft, causing significant damage that led to parts of it being destroyed.
Despite making some adjustments to repair her house, Vasilenko continues to sleep inside the house under difficult conditions, most notably the lack of heating, according to what she tells.
On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, which was followed by angry international reactions and the imposition of “tough” economic and financial sanctions on Moscow.
