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.
In western areas, vehicles were trapped in a three-day traffic jam stretching at one point about 20km (12 miles).
The severe weather is also affecting neighbouring Bulgaria and Romania, where six people have reportedly died.
