In the frontline

Behind the diplomacy, the sanctions, the threats, the analyses, the drones and the missiles, there is something that can’t change.

It’s the soldiers on the front line.

Giorgos Moutafis visited Ukraine’s eastern front and, with his camera, captured the soldiers that staff the frontline trenches and bunkers that form the backbone of Ukrainian defensive positions.

People who live the drama of battle, who are the first to face artillery and Russian tank fire, who resist and are still there.
