Tatyana had just stepped out of the small kitchen in her Donetsk flat when an explosion blasted through the windows, shattering all the glass.Her tiny studio apartment, complete with a large stuffed dog and a portrait of the Virgin Mary, is on east Ukraine's new front line as shelling and missile attacks reach deeper into the city center. The damage in western Donetsk is widespread and seemingly random, hitting multi-story apartment blocks, schools and detached houses.In one block of flats, the side wall has a roundish hole clear through to a flat on the eighth floor, surrounded by a charred black stain. Kuropatova said her flat was in the front-line zone of Maryinka and for her, the hospital bombardment was the final straw after 26 years working there.
