The threat of war between Russia and Ukraine is not over, the tension continues. On the other hand, people are living peacefully in this city of Ukraine. There are smiles on the faces here. It seems that they do not care about what is going on in the outside world.
The whole world is speculating about a war between Russia and Ukraine, but in the eastern Ukrainian city of Mariupol, children are seen playing in the park and skiing on the snow. According to reports, Russia has withdrawn some troops from the Ukrainian border, but the US, including Ukraine, has doubts about it. These claims of Russia are not to be believed. Britain and America are still saying that Russia can attack Ukraine at any time.

Not only this, recently there was a cyber attack on Ukraine, but its effect also did not show on the people of Mariupol city. People are eating in restaurants. Roaming in the shopping mall, having fun. Ihor Chertov of the Coast Guard, who patrols the Sea of Azov in search of warships, says it seems that we are more concerned about Western countries than us.

However, the people of Ukraine know the extent to which their situation can worsen if an attack happens, because before that in 2014, when Russia annexed Crimea, several thousand people were killed. After which some people have become accustomed to living in the shadow of President Vladimir Putin.
People have fear in their mind but they are trying their best to lead a normal life. They are also scared about the external situation. The general public of Ukraine has also geared up in view of the threat of a possible Russian attack. Common people are doing military exercises of their own free will along with the army to face any threat through fake guns. People say that this is a mouse-cat game between Russia and Ukraine which has just started.
35-year-old Marina Hetmanova told that she carries a suitcase with her, which contains First Aid. At the same time, she keeps the petrol tank of her car full, so that she is ready to survive in difficult situations. She said, I don’t want to live in Russia. I will go to western Ukraine or Poland or Germany. I don’t know anything about the current situation. Attack can happen anytime, what will happen after that I don’t know, I just don’t want to die.
Apart from military exercises, awareness is being spread to prepare people for war situations and to protect them from dangers. Some people have even started a helpline to provide help. Many people even feel that the bombing will not happen, even if it does happen, it will not pose any danger to them.
Mariupol is a city in southeastern Ukraine, located on the northern coast of the Sea of Azov. The chances of getting attacked here are minimal. Mariupol’s exports include coal, steel, machinery, and grain. The manager of a city shelter said that people feel that they do not need the shelter. Many shelters have been converted into spas and restaurants.
Coal, steel, machinery are exported from Mariupol.
According to a report, people from Mariupol reported that recently Russian jets were seen patrolling for the first time in years. Because in 2014, Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was attacked in the separatist-held area. Since then only a few aircraft have been seen flying over eastern Ukraine.
It can be normal to face adversity for a country whose neighbor is Russia, which is under the shadow of war, which has faced many difficulties.
