Ukraine conflict: Kharkiv family desperate to treat daughter's cancer

Three-year-old Polina has neuroblastoma – a rare type of childhood cancer.

Her expensive treatment is running out. Her mother faces a dilemma – should the family stay in their basement for safety, or risk going outside to try and flee Kharkiv and get help for their daughter?

Warning – this video contains distressing footage of an explosion in Freedom Square, Kharkiv. It has been verified by the BBC but the source is unknown.
