The number of civilians killed by russian army in Mariupol could be much more than 22,000


Mariupol, Donetsk region

Within a month, 25 new trench-type sectors appeared at the Starokrymsky cemetery. The bodies are stacked in several layers, and then "disguised" with tablets as individual burials.

The number of dead Mariupol residents was estimated at 22,000. But more and more evidence suggests that the consequences are much worse.

About 5 thousand Mariupol residents were buried by public utilities until mid-March. After the city was occupied by russian troops, at least 16 thousand Mariupol residents were buried in mass graves - near the villages of Stary Krym, Mangush and Vynohradne. Thousands of bodies still remain under rubble, in makeshift cemeteries and makeshift morgues.
