Ukraine war leaves many in squalid conditions

As separatists prepare for polls in the east, some people near the frontline are living underground in fear and misery.

    Separatists in eastern Ukraine are preparing to elect a leader and government, in a vote that has been condemned by both Kiev and the West.

    Meanwhile, many people near the frontline of the ongoing battles in the country are living in fear and misery, some in dark and damp underground bunkers.
