At least 83 people have died in Ukraine from a cold spell that has been gripping the country, officials say.
Temperatures as low as -23C (-9F) and heavy snowfall this month have left the capital Kiev and most of the country under a thick frozen layer.
The severe weather is also affecting neighboring Bulgaria and Romania, where six people have reportedly died.
Meteorologists warn that temperatures may drop even further.
Nearly 100 towns and villages across the country remain without electricity, and Army units have been deployed to help clear the snow on major motorways.
Last winter, more than 100 people died from the cold in Ukraine.
