Ukrainian couple who married near the front line reunited – BBC News

In March, Lesya and Valeriy, two volunteers in Ukraine’s civil defence forces, got married in a military-style ceremony at a checkpoint, days after Russia invaded Ukraine. Footage of their wedding went viral.

Nine months later, Lesya has left the army although Valeriy continues to serve.

The couple have reunited in Ukraine’s capital Kyiv after Valeriy returned from duty to celebrate Christmas.
