Thirteen people are living in frontline Piski, the Donetsk region, now. Before the war, 2.5 thousand people lived in the elite settlement. Locals survive thanks to humanitarian aid delivered by servicemen.

News from the occupied territory:

«Donetsk City» mall partially reopened in Donetsk on April 2. A lot of people gathered outside the mall several hours before the opening. As there are not many places in the city where one can buy clothes, it takes locals only a couple of days to buy all the goods in newly-opened shops.
