Residents of the village of Maksymivka in Mykolaiv region lived under Russian occupation for eight months. The advanced positions of the Russian army were located in the village, from which they shelled Mykolaiv: it is only about 30 km from Maksimyvka to the city. People who stayed in the village during the occupation remember the arrests, beatings and looting of soldiers from Russia and the “DPR” and “LPR” groups and call them “horde”. They say that the Russian military left very quickly, at night, and did not have time to take all the combat equipment, so they did it much easier, setting fire to the houses where their ammunition was stored
