13 October 2022, Ichnya, Ukraine: Olena Vedmid, a 41-year-old mother of two (son 18, daughter 14), and her five-year-old cat Murchik visit what used to be their family home in the village of Bil’machivka — a community of just over 500 people north of the town of Ichnya, Chernihiv Oblast — until an explosion razed it to the ground as Russian military forces advanced through Itchnya as they invaded Ukraine in the spring of 2022. Olena says her family were not at home when the explosion took place, but two of her four cats were killed, and as the family does not have the money or resources to rebuild the house, they are now living with relatives of her husband’s, where they will likely stay until the war is over. Olena’s family is one of many among the different villages that make up the municipality of Ichnya to lose their homes in this period, as fighting and attacks led to many houses being either severely damaged, or simply razed to the ground.
