Ukraine: Our parents wouldn’t leave Bucha, then Russia moved in

Sisters Lesia and Galya met on the Ukraine border in the early days of the war, but their parents didn’t want to leave their hometown of Bucha and they soon lost touch with them.

They met BBC Population reporter Stephanie Hegarty in the border town of Siret as they waited anxiously for news.
