Ukraine has kick-started its football league’s season, with a ceremony paying tribute to those killed in the war and the soldiers who remain on the frontline.

The opening-day game between Shakhtar Donetsk and Metalist 1925 from Kharkiv marked the first top-level football match played in the country since Russia’s invasion in February

Kyiv’s Olympic Stadium has staged some of the biggest games in European football but never in an empty stadium and Tuesday’s match featured two teams from the war-torn east of the country – one from Donetsk and one from Kharkiv.

The teams, playing hundreds of miles away from their hometowns, came to a 0-0 draw.
