'On our watch we let it burn': Notre Dame fire leaves hole in heart of Paris

Wednesday 15:25 GMT

“It felt like I was looking at a bombing,” said Philippe Marsset, the vicar general of Notre Dame, one of the first to enter to survey the damage.

In the French national psyche, Notre Dame was more than a historic house of God; it was a marker, a reference point, even in secular France.

Thursday 20:00 GMT

'A whole generation has gone': Ukrainians seek better life in Poland

Friday 04:14 GMT

When the small business run by Kristina Melnytska’s father began to struggle in 2014 he did what hundreds of thousands of other Ukrainians were doing and moved his family to Poland.

“We have ended up with a whole generation that has gone,” said Irina Vereshchuk, a former mayor of Rava-Ruska, a town on the border with Poland. On Sunday the country will vote in a presidential election in which the television comedian and political neophyte Volodymyr Zelenskiy is expected to score a crushing victory over the incumbent, Petro Poroshenko, in a sign of just how dissatisfied people are with widespread corruption and the lack of economic opportunities over the past few years.
