Serhiy Zhadan: Injured yet unbreakable. In Ukraine image

In February 2022, Russian planes turned the peaceful skies over Ukraine into a theatre of fear and death. The Ukrainian poet-activist and band member Serhiy Zhadan immediately took to social media, coordinating a network of resistance workers and sending messages of courage to his fellow citizens. Sky Above Kharkiv collects together those messages into a stunning eyewitness testimony. He joins us via an online link from Ukraine to share the latest news from the resistance. In conversation with Charlotte Higgins.
