    Ukraine is holding a pivotal presidential election against the backdrop of the war in the east with Moscow-backed fighters, which is now in its fifth year.

    The conflict has crippled the country's most economically important region, drained public resources, and exhausted voters.

    And there is no end in sight.

    Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull reports from the city of Mariupol, where the conflict is never far away.
