Ozerne village in Donetsk oblast lies next to the Siversky Donets River. The river is now a popular place for anglers due to the slow streams of fresh water, yet during the conflict in 2014 between Ukrainian and separatist forces, it witnessed fierce fighting.
A bridge across the river was a crucial piece of infrastructure controlled by non-government forces between April and June 2014, before being taken back by the Ukrainian Army.
During a visit to Kiev today, Boris Johnson, Britain’s Foreign Secretary, announced an additional £2m for The HALO Trust to continue its operations in Ukraine over the next two years. The UK charity is currently clearing landmines and other explosive remnants of the conflict in the country’s eastern regions.
