The armed conflict between government forces and Russia-backed armed groups has taken a heavy toll on civilians in eastern Ukraine.
But even as heartbreaking images of Ukrainian cities being bombed circulate, there are beautiful acts of goodwill that are writing their own stories of resistance via peace and affection.
Among many such stories, a video of a news reporter stopping a live broadcast to help an elderly refugee in a wheelchair has gone viral after the Instgram page, Good News Movement, shared it.
In the video, captioned: "humanity before anything", the journalist was reporting in a native language when he saw a woman struggling to lift an elderly woman in a wheelchair over the pavement.

Running to help woman on wheelchair
The unidentified male journalist quickly ran towards the women and helped pull the wheelchair while asking how far they were going.
" Do you need any help?" he asked before, to which the lady answered they were heading to their car, which was 40 metres away.
"I do not know if my camera will work, but I will try to," he said.
The women further indicated they were from the Odessa region, which is the third-most populous city and municipality in Ukraine.
The city is a major tourism centre, seaport and transport hub located in the southwest of the country, on the northwestern shore of the Black Sea.
The women, however, did not mention where they were headed to.
Nevertheless, the journalist's act of kindness attracted admiration from internet users, who showered him with praises.

Kenya condemns Russia
YEN.com.gh previously reported that Kenya confronted Russia for what it termed as undermining the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
This is after the Vladimir Putin led super-power country recognised the Donetsk and Luhansk areas of Ukraine as independent states.
During an emergency Security Council meeting, Kenya's permanent representative to the UN Ambassador Martin Kimani said the country was gravely concerned by Russia's announcement.
During the Monday, February 21 conference, Kimani noted that Kenya's stand on diplomacy to help end the conflict in Ukraine was not considered.
