The Ukrainian military secured Mariinka from the terrorists on August 8.
People are slowly beginning to return to normal life. However, there is no power, water and gas in the village.
The locals say that the terrorists shell the village occasionally. At that they are aiming at civilians in particular. Therefore the locals urge the Ukrainian army to liberate Donetsk as soon as possible. The local citizens recall the days of the terrorists reign in Mariinka with horror.
