Probably something told from a Ukranian government perspective but not from a Donbas oppressed resident by the Ukrainians.

Maruipol is recovering fast.

The port is open and construction is booming.

It will be a bustling city once again with a vibrant Greek expat community who have their own story to tell about what really happened there.

Their stories were widely available in Greek media but oddly not taken up by AP or Reuters.

Who invaded Ukraine? Certainly the Ukrainians did not themselves.

It's a documentary of Mariupol home videos filmed in the early days of the war, before they had to leave the city

"Frozen In Time: A Rare Look At Life In Mariupol Under Russian Occupation"


Russian occupation authorities promised to rebuild housing in Mariupol by winter, but in reality, thousands of people face the cold in largely destroyed houses and apartments. Mariupol residents told Vazhnyye Istorii about how they are surviving as winter falls.

Up to 90% of high-rise buildings and 60% of private homes have been damaged or destroyed. Nevertheless, there are still about 100,000 people in the occupied city. Many of them have no electricity, heat, water, or sewage. People live without utilities, with tape covering broken windows, and are freezing in their homes in the absence of promised aid that Russia has failed to deliver.

About the pro-Russian or pro-Ukrainian position: nobody cares what happens in politics. They don't watch the news, and they don't follow the fighting. They don't see who is advancing or retreating. They want to survive, and they want to restore at least a normal livelihood. Right now, it's inhuman. The city is destroyed, and people are doomed to extinction. I'm sitting at home; my feet and hands are freezing cold. That is why such questions are irrelevant here. If you ask about Ukraine or Russia on the street, people will say, "Does it matter now?"

Before June, we were given humanitarian kits from the "United Russia" (political party), sugar, pasta. But since June, they've only been giving these kits to children from 0 to 3 years old. I survive on subsistence food. Sometimes the residents share some food. You don't know what you will eat tomorrow.
