<p class=”ssrcss-1q0x1qg-Paragraph eq5iqo00″>As Russia’s forces approached Lyman last June, 41,000 civilians fled, leaving about 10,000 people behind. Many of those were elderly, or poor – or, like Ira and Valeri, had sick relatives who refused to leave. For the next four months, about 60 people squeezed into the same cellar on Railway Street.</p>

<p class=”ssrcss-1q0x1qg-Paragraph eq5iqo00″>”It was difficult at times. People are different. Some became aggressive – we’re not used to living all together like this,” says Ira. Adding to that stress was the fact that, by Ira’s reckoning, about a third of those who had chosen to stay in the cellar were pro-Russian, actively hoping that Ukraine would lose the war.</p>
