Svitlodarsk, Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine

Natalia Voronkova (44), a volunteer who offers support and basic first aid training for Ukrainian government forces fighting Russian-backed separatists in the east of the country, learns about the various types of landmines and weapons used by the separatists and their Russian backers, how to spot them in the field, and how they damage the body (so that she can later inform soldiers how to better treat the wounds). Recently, a new type of mine is being used against Ukrainian forces which they are very concerned about. It is being dropped from the air, sometimes by drones, and Natalia Voronkova wants to know all the details so that she can spread the information and warn the soldiers.

While Natalia works on the frontlines she uses the opportunity to get a unfiltered sense of the reality and challenges the soldiers face on the ground; impressions she uses as a special advisor to the Ministry of Defence.
