The Human Toll of Putin’s War

On this week’s episode of Inside the Hive, Emily Jane Fox talks to the Hive’s editor and resident Russia – Ukraine expert, Miriam Elder, about what is happening on the ground in Ukraine. As Russia escalates its war in Ukraine, including its bombing of a maternity and children’s hospital in Mariupol, Elder talks through the human toll of this war: the impossible choices families are having to make, the horrors children are living through, the impact on a pediatric cancer hospital, and what Russian families are facing at the same time. Author Rebecca Fox Starr then stops by to discuss how we talk about hard things with children, teach kids to take in events with empathy, and process our own feelings about what is happening in this world.
