Chandigarh, March 7

One year on in war with Russia, Ukraine posted many terrorising and sad pictures of Marinka--a town in the suburbs of Donetsk--that has been completely destroyed.

The depressing pictures show that not even a single house is left standing in the town.

"It used to be home for around 10,000 people. It used to be a peaceful city...Zoom in to see that nothing is left untouched," Ukraine said.

Before the war, 10,000 people lived in Mariinka, a town in the suburbs of Donetsk, which has become one of the fiercest settings of the ongoing conflict.

It lies on the outskirts of Donetsk, where territory is roughly split between Russian and Ukrainian control.

The pictures draw a comparison with Hiroshima in Japan.

The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the detonation of two atomic bombs over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9 in 1945 by the United States.

The two bombings killed between 129,000 and 226,000 people, most of whom were civilians. The war ended in September 2 that year.
