Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Ukraine’s Kyiv returning to life with residents confident of vict” – below is their description.
People in Ukraine’s capital are still confident about winning the war, and even reclaiming their lost land.
Thousands have been killed, millions are homeless and cities and towns are in ruins.
But Al Jazeera’s Zein Basravi found a lot of optimism in Kyiv.
Ukraine is a large country in Eastern Europe known for its Orthodox churches, Black Sea coastline and forested mountains. Its capital, Kiev, features the gold-domed St. Sophia’s Cathedral, with 11th-century mosaics and frescoes. Overlooking the Dnieper River is the Kiev Pechersk Lavra monastery complex, a Christian pilgrimage site housing Scythian tomb relics and catacombs containing mummified Orthodox monks.
