Debalcevo is quiet now, but the destruction left behind by the Ukrainian army can be seen everywhere, which makes the lives of local citizens miserable.
The city has no water and electricity, and due to the constant bombardment entire streets were destroyed.
Soldiers of the Self-Defense Forces are now cleaning up unexploded ordnance and dismantling lethal booby traps across the region.
Rebels are also captured large amount of weapons and military hardware that the retreating government forces left behind - tanks, grenade launchers and other military assets are now in the hands of the defenders of the city.
One rebel said to the reporter that the most advanced US weapons that Obama and McCain wanted to send to the Ukrainian army would eventually end up in rebel hands.
