can we survive without fruits or vegetables?

This has not been studied. In the short term, you probably can. For long-term health, it is not advisable to try. Fruits and vegetables do contain important vitamins and minerals, many of which are water-soluble and need to be consumed daily to prevent deficiency. They also contain fiber as will as other substances that appear to be important for health.
