The images were posted by NGO Ukrainian Military Portal on Facebook.

The photos show the structures of a completely destroyed airport, broken military hardware, trip wires, an ammunition depot, remains of defensive barriers, and a church near the airport.

The airport, which was once a modern transportation hub, was destroyed in fierce battles after Russian-led forces' attempts to seize it on May 26, 2014. Ukraine's government completely lost control of the airport on January 21, 2015, after the so-called second battle of Donetsk Airport, when it was besieged for three months, three weeks and two days.
