Life in temporarily occupied Mariupol now looks like this: To cook, people light fires every day. Shrubs, books, chairs and other wooden furniture are stored in the entrances.


There are a lot of broken cars in the yards. Their owners leave notes stating that the owner of the car is in the city so that it is not stolen or taken to a landfill. Water is not provided at home, so people are forced to collect from the street. The only option for most Mariupol residents to take a shower is a public shower.

City residents are catastrophically short of food. It came to the point that they were forced to set traps for pigeons in the streets so as not to starve to death.
