Important warning. Every day since the start of the Russian invasion, Meduza’s editors have selected key shots taken during the previous day of the war. These pictures contain scenes of gore, violence and death, but most of them not placed under a special plate, which the editors usually hide such images. In a series of these photo stories, we try to document the war as it is.
