Ukraine prospects of peace: The forgotten children of war

The war in eastern Ukraine has claimed more than 6,000 lives and left more than one million people without homes since it began in early 2014.

Natalia Antelava and Abdujalil Abdurasulov have been travelling around Ukraine for a series looking at the success of February's truce signed in Minsk.

Because the conflict is so steeped in differing cultural ideologies and identities, many ordinary people have volunteered to join the fight either in support of the national government or the pro-Russia separatists.

The BBC News team visited a children's rehabilitation centre in Luhansk that provides shelter to youngsters whose parents either died in the war or are still fighting.
