Berdyansk Spit is always in a rush in the summer, and this year only locals and Ukrainians go to the sea, who were able to escape from the occupied cities with a more difficult situation.

As they say in the story “Snidanku z 1 + 1”, marked rashist vehicles drive through the streets, the occupiers check documents, and sometimes even check houses.

A resident of Berdyansk, Svetlana, said that propaganda billboards and Russian tricolors hang everywhere around the city. From home, a woman goes only to the market. Large shopping centers in Berdyansk have been looted and closed. In their place, the occupiers opened their outlets, where they sell looted Ukrainian goods, products from the occupied Crimea and the Russian Federation.

But the prices are unpleasantly impressive – they have crept up sharply. For example, a pack of 7 pads costs UAH 135, sweets and cookies – UAH 300 per kg. The price tags are already double – in hryvnias and rubles, but it is difficult to find hryvnias, this must be done through resellers.

In addition, there are constant interruptions in communication in the city, the sounds of explosions and shots are heard at night. Almost all young people left for the territory controlled by Ukraine. The city was left without gas due to damage to the gas pipeline by the invaders.

Recall that despite the war, many residents of Ukraine are making plans for a summer vacation in 2022. Anton Taranenko, Chairman of the Board of the Association of Representatives of Tourism Transformation of Ukraine Visit Ukraine, said that this year crazy demand for holidays in Odessa because Berdyansk, Mariupol, Kherson are occupied.
