A diverse resistance is taking shape in Lviv as residents get trained in warfare

The city of Lviv in western Ukraine has been spared the worst of Russia’s war so far, but Lviv's residents are preparing for the assault to come to them. Meanwhile, they’re sending supplies and volunteers ready to fight to the frontlines. Residents are attending free firearms training, building DIY firebombs and readying to join the fight.

Here, a diverse resistance is taking shape.

In the week since Russia invaded Ukraine, tens of thousands of Ukrainians have enlisted to fight and Ukraine’s defense ministry expects roughly 16,000 foreign volunteers to join soon.

At a military enlistment center, 19-year-old interior design student Zhora Malconyan stands in line waiting to sign up.

A bulging blue duffle bag is slung around his body. Inside is his uniform, a tin cup, packs of cigarettes, important documents, and individually wrapped candies.
