As Ukraine’s combine harvesters roared back into action, children clambered on blitzed Russian tanks.
Despite a Russian Black Sea blockade that runs the risk of causing global famines, farmers started the monumental task of reaping the fourth-largest grain harvest in history.
Huge farm equipment rumbled through golden fields under blue skies, the colors of the national flag of Ukraine, which has become a symbol of resistance around the world.
It happened as families in Irpin, which is north of Kiev, took pictures of themselves with a wrecked Russian tank.
To remind people of their incredible victories in the early stages of Russia’s onslaught, authorities in Kyiv’s capital have parked a variety of blitzed Russian equipment on display.
