Dmytro Bahnenko, a journalist in Kherson, southern Ukraine, spent three months secretly recording his city’s resistance to the Russian occupation. In an extraordinary film for BBC Eye, Dmytro chronicles the harsh reality of life under Russian control, as food and medicines become scarce, people flee and others disappear. Dmytro and his wife Lidia struggle to shelter their five-year-old daughter Ksusha from the war as she increasingly senses the danger around her. “I don’t want them to shoot bombs at me,” she says. After a close relative is threatened by the Russian military, the family makes a difficult decision to try to escape.
