Ukraine soldiers pay tribute to fallen comrades

Ukrainian soldiers take a knee as their comrades carry the coffins of their fellow servicemen Roman Vyshynskyi, Yuriy Lelyavskyi and Ihor Hadyak, who were killed in combat fighting Russian troops, during a funeral ceremony in Lviv, on Friday amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Ukrainian troops have been leading counter-offensives in the south and the east of the country in the past few weeks, clawing back large swathes of territory.
