The "resolve" of the people still in the country has been described by two volunteers who have returned from Ukraine.
Damian Griffiths and Douglas Hall, who are both from Suffolk, worked in a Lviv kitchen supplying food to front-line soldiers.
Additionally, both of them stated that since the conflict started a year ago, people have been trying to go about their daily lives.
The Ukrainian people's tenacity and resolve, according to Mr. Griffiths, are simply amazing. ".
In addition, he applied his expertise from his position as a specialist nurse at Noah's Ark Children's Hospice in Barnet to his volunteer work at a children's hospital in the area.
He described his time there as "quite traumatic.".
Families are still going about their daily lives, and life goes on.
"It was just amazing to see people shopping in the dark with their torches on their phones, without having electric, heating on, or internet or phones," he continued.
Upon entering the city, according to Mr. Hall of Newmarket, there are indications that the nation is at war.
"The churches have their windows boarded up, and all the statues in town are boarded up," he said.
There are several people using wheelchairs, walking with crutches, or missing arms, legs, or both. ".
Mr. Hall met a soldier who had been hurt in a rocket attack while he was cooking.
He made no remarks about his state of health. He confided in me that day that his only complaint was that England had lost the World Cup match he had bet on between England and France.
Every Ukrainian I encountered was in some way suffering, he continued.
They are all working together, which is amazing to see given their utter resolve.
