Ukrainian forces are trying to wrest the initiative from Russian forces before winter arrives. These forces have already launched a counterattack in the south, and the Ukrainians are now preparing to expand in the east to reclaim lost lands in the Donbass and around Kharkiv in the north.

Journalist Quentin Summerville and photographer Darren Conway accompanied a unit of Ukrainian forces fighting on the front lines and returned with this report.

The air here smells of burning sunflower fields, and Russian cluster bombs can be heard falling across the fields, setting fire to sunflowers. The sun that has tilted its heads due to the weight of its fruits, waiting for the harvest season that may not come.

A self-propelled gun roars across the field, its heavy tracks tearing the fertile plains of Donbass.
