The BBC has been given rare access to the Ukrainian soldiers digging trenches on the frontline of the war.
Here, soldiers live under constant threat of Russian snipers and shelling.
In BBC Newsnight’s final film with Ukraine’s 24th Mechanised Brigade, injured soldiers share their hopes as they retrain to join the war, while those on the frontline discuss when they think fighting will end.
