Their high school lies in ruins from the brutal Russian onslaught.

But these Ukrainian pupils were still determined to mark their graduation in traditional fashion by dancing a waltz.

Members of a graduating class in Ukraine usually dance a waltz in front of the entire school as students hear the bell rung for the last time.

Olena Mosolova, a geography teacher from the school, said: ‘We had imagined a different ‘last bell’ for our kids, but it is what it is, and we want to have a celebration for the kids.’
