Escape From Your Own House

Imagine that you live in a prosperous city, and at 4 a. m. a bomb is dropped on you, and in 20 minutes you have to gather a family and run away from death

Mariupol is deserted. Before the war, 540.000 people lived in the city, which is the largest industrial center of Ukraine and a pearl of the port. However, Putin, unable to raise the standard of living of the citizens of his own country, decided to intervene in the happy life of Ukrainians. According to the mayor of Mariupol, Vadym Boychenko, half of the city's population. Several thousand more Mariupol residents were killed by the Russians, and several thousand more were stolen and taken to Russia.

“As soon as the war began and while the railway was still working, while ordinary roads were still working, about 140 thousand left. Then another 100,000 left. 60.000 were taken out in an organized way through the corridor, with the help of volunteers. But you need to understand that there are people in the vicinity of the city who also require evacuation,” Boychenko added.
