Meet The Volunteers Running Into A War Zone To Rescue Civilians

A group of volunteers is braving artillery barrages to evacuate residents from Bakhmut, the epicenter of fighting in eastern Ukraine.

NPR’s Frank Langfitt profiles one of them, a 29-year-old who used to work as a journalist in Poland.

In participating regions, you’ll also hear a local news segment to help you make sense of what’s going on in your community.
