A school building has been decimated in the Zaporizhzhia region of Ukraine. There was no Christmas respite from shelling here, with local authorities reporting 590 Russian attacks over the span of seven days.

Elsewhere on the front, some of the fiercest fighting has been reported around the town of Bahmut in the Donbass region. For months, Russian troops have been trying to make gains here, against the backdrop of Ukrainian counterattacks in the northeast and south.

As hospitals in Bahmut are inadequate, some of the Ukrainian soldiers wounded at the front are taken to the nearby city of Toretsk for treatment.
