August 19, 2014, Maryanivka, Donbass, Ukraine. Locals take shelter during intense shelling nearby. Ukrainian forces are inching closer to the besieged city of Donetsk where thousands of separatists have regrouped to hold one of their last remaining strongholds in the region. South of the city, the agglomeration of Maryanivka has been under intense shelling from government troops loyal to Kiev, killing civilians and soldiers alike and forcing locals to take shelter in cellars around town. This fighting suggests a potential government ground offensive to retake Donetsk.
