Irina Galushko goes to a refugee camp in the small town of Donetsk on the Russian-Ukrainian border. It's her first field assignment after a long break. She needed the break after frequent travelling, a very hard but inherent part of this job. But now she is about to see people who were uprooted and forced to flee their homes without much hope of ever coming back. Harry Fear is also in a refugee camp. But this camp, the Gaza Strip, has become a permanent place of residence for thousands of people. They try their best to make their crammed basic accommodation look like a home. But these houses can't protect them anymore. They find themselves at the centre of an armed conflict that threatens their very lives.
As Peter Oliver continues to report from the scene of violent clashes between anti-government protesters and police in Ukraine, he manages to get closer to the blazing barricades made of tyres and burnt-out cars. Meanwhile, Paula Slier covers a pro-government protest in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk.

Paula Slier travels to the town of Ilovaysk in Ukraine to visit an anti-government fighter camp and speak to a commander. Meanwhile in the UK, Marina Kosareva goes to Scotland where she teams up with another RT UK correspondent, Polly Boiko, to cover the referendum there.
Harry Fear goes to Beit Hanoun, a city on the northeast border of the Gaza Strip, to investigate the shelling of a UN school there.
