Russian invaders are still driving military equipment through Mariupol: on July 9, a large convoy of equipment and five buses carrying military personnel left for temporarily captured Berdiansk and the front line.
This was reported on Telegram by Petro Andriushchenko, the mayor’s adviser.
“A large convoy of V-marked equipment and five buses carrying military personnel, which had entered Mariupol the day before, left for the city of Berdiansk yesterday after 13:00 local time. In addition, military equipment from various storage sites across Mariupol joined the convoy “The official wrote.
The occupiers resumed imports of fuel and military equipment, as well as exports of looted goods, at the Mariupol port. Ammunition storage facilities are located in residential areas.
Russia’s aggression has resulted in one of Mariupol’s worst humanitarian disasters. Enemy shelling has nearly completely destroyed the city, including local businesses, utility infrastructure, schools, kindergartens, hospitals, and residential buildings.
Mariupol currently has no regular supply of electricity, water, or gas. Approximately 22,000 civilians have been killed in the city since the Russian invasion. More than 50,000 people have been deported to Russia and the temporarily occupied Donetsk region.
More than 100,000 people are still trapped in the city. Mariupol is facing a natural disaster as well as an outbreak of infectious diseases.
