Over the past thirteen days, Ukraine has been rocked by chaos and violence at an unprecedented scale.

Millions of people have been rendered homeless and thousands others killed in Ukraine following a brutal invasion by Russia.

However, amidst the ongoing chaos and uncertainty, a soldier-couple, donning their military uniforms got married on the battlefield.

The couple – Lesya and Valeriy – are volunteers in the 112th battalion of Kyiv Special Troop Brigade.

The couple reportedly have been together for over twenty years and also have an 18-year-old daughter.
