Up to 230,000 Ukrainians have had to flee their homes because of intense fighting in the east of the country.

Many have relocated to other parts of Ukraine, while others have crossed the border into Russia.

The BBC's Tom Burridge visited the city of Kharkiv, where he met a number of displaced families who left their homes behind in search of safety.
