On Debaltsevo central square, local authorities try to provide some support to the people who mostly come by foot. We see very few car in the streets. Kacha (buckwheat), bread and hot tea are distributed. Hot dishes are extremely appreciated as there are no heating nor electricity in town. Next to the square, a generator has been set up for people to charge their mobile phone and flashlight, two essential items for people sheltering in the basement of their building.
