Seven people - including two Christian humanitarian aid workers - have been killed following attacks in Mariupol.
Despite the dire situation that the area is facing, the two civilians - who were working as part of Caritas, the Catholic Church's international aid agency - remained in the south-eastern city.
The conflict in Mariupol has reached new levels of severity - the UK and a number of other Western countries are trying to verify reports of a chemical attack.
Christina Allen, director of Cafod - the UK branch of Caritas - told Premier that the attack has changed the way, she is reflecting on the Easter season:
"I'm sure Tatiana from Caritas Ukraine would say 'this is what we have to do. This is what we're called to do'
"It feels very appropriate that we're in Holy Week.
"We have to be people of hope.
"We are people of the cross, but we are also people who resonate.
"Should we just have to keep bringing that hope and that light despite the despair?
"That's our faith. That's what we're called to do, because we are people of hope.
"We believe in Jesus that destroyed death, where love wins over hate, light wins over darkness."
As of yet, it's not known whether the Caritas workers died, after their offices were hit by rockets, or by a tank missiles.
Christina paid tribute to the women who have died in the attack, noting their exceptional bravery.
She said: "I'm almost speechless. It's so difficult to imagine ourselves going into that situation.
"Yet these are people who are giving selflessly.
"They've given their lives, but since absolute day one - and before day one in many respects - they've been supporting people, helping people, providing the
basics and at really their own costs."
