Canadian photojournalist and videographer Michael Agosti has been documenting the war unfold around him in Ukraine.
He has spent nights camped out in train stations with those fleeing their homes, attended the devastated scenes of Russian air strikes, been allowed into a sanctuary where surrogate mothers were tending to babies, and explored the front lines as this conflict has raged on for more than a month.
Below are some of the sights he has encountered in recent days and weeks.
The late afternoon sun lights up the face of a man being treated by a paramedic at Przemyśl train station as dozens of Ukrainian refugees wait to board trains deeper into Poland. Since Russia first invaded Ukraine more than a month ago, more than two million refugees have funnelled into neighbouring Poland, with Przemyśl being one of the main transit hubs.
At dusk in Medyka, a town on the Ukraine-Poland border, a woman there to offer support looks out at the scene around her. A humanitarian convoy stretches hundreds of meters back with aid workers there to assist refugees arriving at their first point of safety. A quiet and heavy stillness besets the area as families huddle together in front of makeshift fires to keep warm. Nearby, a man sits at a battered piano playing classical music.
An elderly woman rests at Lviv railway station in the mid-morning while waiting with her family to move onward. Outside the railway station, a parking lot serves as a staging area for refugees in transit with tents lining the distance of half a city block, as aid workers buzz about with food and water.
The warmth of the morning sun washes over a mother cradling her child after a cold, dark night spent in the Kyiv railway station. The foot of a second child peeks out from beneath an orange blanket. Families seek refuge on the couches and floor of a ballroom-style foyer in the rail station while they are ordered to keep off the streets of the Ukrainian capital at night, at risk of getting caught up in conflict.

Surrogate mothers care for babies in an underground shelter in a residential area of Kyiv, which is actively under threat of Russian air strikes. The biological parents of these babies are outside of Ukraine, which has left the citizenship and guardianship of these newborns in question.
