Family secretly film life in Russian-occupied Ukraine – BBC News

Share This

Russia is scrambling to pull its military personnel and citizens out of the city of Kherson ahead of a Ukrainian counter-offensive. Ukrainian father Dmytro Bahnenko reflects on the months he and his family lived there under occupation and secretly filmed for BBC Eye at great personal risk. Dmytro, whose day job had been as a local reporter, never thought he’d be filming the invasion of his home city. Along with his wife Lidia, Dmytro struggles to shelter their five-year-old daughter Ksusha from the war as she increasingly senses the danger around her. Kherson was the first major city to fall to Russian forces when they invaded Ukraine in February and he began filming the family’s lives when Russian soldiers first marched past their window on 1 March.
