In a Ukrainian town, a potato field full of mines

STORY: There's an unexploded mine in this potato patch.

Yuriy Zdorovets says he's found 10 to 15 of them around his home in the eastern Ukrainian village of Kamyanka.

They're unwelcome souvenirs of the war.

“We dug the anti-personnel mines out with a 13-foot-long shovel and took it to a visible place, pointed it out to the Ukrainian soldiers, and they shot at them to neutralise them."

Kamyanka came under attack by Russian forces in early March - and was recaptured by Ukraine in September.

But the town of 1,200 has dwindled down to just 12 over that time.

Zdorovets' family are among those who stayed behind.

For the first month of Russia’s invasion, they hid in a cellar while air strikes descended on them.

"When the shell exploded, I was right here. The explosion threw me to the ground, there was dust everywhere around me. The explosion threw the roof up, I didn't understand what was going on or what caused all of this."

In the months since, the shelling has ravaged their home beyond repair.

With winter approaching, they face the prospect of months without heat and electricity.

They cook and heat their home with the wood from leftover ammunition boxes.

Yet another reminder of the war as the Zdorovets begin to pick up the pieces.
