In Eastern Ukraine, families and friends have been burying their loved ones killed in the deadly fighting near Donetsk airport. CCTV America’s Stephanie Freid attended one funeral and files this report.

Despite the cease-fire declared two weeks ago by both sides, people continue to die in conflicts in Eastern Ukraine.

Six civilians have died recently during the shelling at the Donetsk airport.
