Russian forces carried out most of the attacks in Mariupol
Russian troops were constantly firing on the outskirts of the capital, Kiev. At that time, Marupol was hit hardest by the Russian invasion. In a city of 430,000 people, life was difficult. Locals were also deprived of basic amenities due to the firing of Russian troops in the entire area. More than 1,500 people were killed in the Mariopol attack by Russian forces, and the shootings hampered efforts to bury the bodies in mass graves.
Zelensky accused Russia of breaking up the country
Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russia of breaking up his country and launching a “new phase of terrorism” and arresting the mayor of the city west of Mariupol. The video was released by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. Speaking during the video, he said, “They are bombing Mariupol 24 hours a day, firing missiles. It’s hate. They’re killing children.”
