Ukraine crisis: A family's story after 'hell' of Donetsk airport battle
Few Ukrainian soldiers survived the battle for Donetsk Airport in eastern Ukraine when it was taken by pro-Russian forces in January.
One of those that did was Sergeant Major Anatoly Svyryd.
After he was taken prisoner, his wife went to the rebel-held city of Donetsk to negotiate his release, and she was also detained.
But the couple are now back together again.
