Home Schooling Amid A Military Standoff In Eastern Ukraine

The village of Zaytseve, near Horlivka in eastern Ukraine, is split down the middle by checkpoints and armed forces. On one side are Russia-backed separatists who call themselves the Donetsk People's Republic. On the other side are Ukrainian government forces. Sporadic shelling strikes the town in spite of a cease-fire. Some children are separated from their school by the front lines, so they study and play at home, confined by the conditions of war.
