According to the Mariupol City Council, after the international outcry after the genocide in Bucha was uncovered, Russia’s top leadership ordered the destruction of any evidence of crimes committed by its army in Mariupol.

The city authorties note that a week ago, cautious estimates put the death toll at 5,000. But given the size of the city, catastrophic destruction, the duration of the blockade and fierce resistance, tens of thousands of civilians from Mariupol could fall victim to the occupiers. That is why Russia is in no hurry to give the green light to the Turkish mission and other initiatives to save and fully evacuate Mariupol.

It is also noted that all potential witnesses are being identified through filtration camps and destroyed.

Eyewitnesses report that russians recruited those f rom “so called” “DNR” to special brigades. The work of these groups is directly coordinated by the self-proclaimed mayor-collaborator Kostiantyn Ivashchenko, the Mariupol City Council notes.

He is a member of banned in Ukraine pro-Russian OPZJ party. He can often now be seen on Russian channels. At the same meeting, where he was “elected” by OPZJ, also “recognized” the “referendum 2014” and consider Mariupol now a “satellite of Russia.”
