              In the village of Vavylove, a Ukrainian serviceman embraces his mother for the first time since Russian troops withdrew from the Kherson region, southern Ukraine, Sunday, Nov. 13, 2022. Families were torn apart when Russia invaded in February, as some fled and others hunkered down. Now many are seeing one another for the first time in months, after Moscow's latest retreat amid a Ukrainian counteroffensive that has retaken a pocket of territory wedged between the regional capitals of Kherson and Mykolaiv and the Black Sea.
