UKRAINE-RUSSIA-CONFLICT-MOBILE-COMMUNICATION

Residents in the hope of catching a signal from cell towers make their calls from a bridge, one of the few places available for mobile connection provided by Vodafone Ukraine (former MTS) in Donetsk on February 2, 2018. Every day dozens of people in the Ukrainian rebel stronghold of Donetsk gather on a windswept railroad overpass not far from the frontline despite the risk of coming under fire. They come to the bridge at a half-abandoned railway station on the outskirts of the city in the hope of catching a signal from cell towers on the other side of the frontline to be able to call their family and friends in government-controlled territories. / AFP PHOTO / Aleksey FILIPPOV (Photo credit should read ALEKSEY FILIPPOV/AFP/Getty Images)
