Ukraine conflict: Volunteers recovering the dead

Volunteers in Ukraine are risking their lives to recover the bodies of soldiers killed in action in the east of the country.

Hundreds of soldiers have gone missing during the conflict and the Ukrainian government admits that it does not have an accurate account of all the servicemen killed.

The recovery operation is being funded by donations but the money raised barely covers the cost of fuel.

Olga Ivshina reports from Donetsk.
