The streets of Mariupol, destroyed by constant bombing and shelling from Russian troops, are now littered with rubble, shell fragments and remains of broken buildings. A local resident walks near a collapsing apartment building, likely damaged by Russian air strikes.
While Russia declared victory over Mariupol last Thursday, the marks of Ukraine’s fight against Russian forces remain.

The southern port city has been under Russian attack since the beginning of March. Once a beautiful city, many of its buildings now stand in ruins.
