Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty: Bomb-Shelter Baby Only Knows Underground Life In Kharkiv

Olha Shevchenko was seven months pregnant when Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24.

Two months later, her baby boy, Zhenya, was born and he’s been in the shelter his whole life.
