20.000-22.000 Victims of Russia in Mariupol

The head of the Donetsk military administration, in an interview with "CNN", announced the preliminary minimum number of Russians killed in Mariupol

On April 12, Pavlo Kyrylenko, head of the military administration, shared the statistics of Ukrainian civilians who died at the hands of the occupiers.

"The situation in Mariupol makes it difficult to comment on the number of victims, the city is under siege and blockade. Now we are talking about 20 to 22 thousand dead in Mariupol," Pavlo Kyrylenko.

Kyrylenko clarifies that the death toll is much higher, but so far, it is not possible to give an exact figure.

The number of Russian victims increases daily as the occupiers do not let the civilian population out of Mariupol and do not allow humanitarian aid to pass through. According to the mayor of the city, Vadim Boychenko, mobile crematoriums have already started operating in the city, in which Russians burn the bodies of Ukrainians. This measure was taken to cover up the traces of the genocide of the Ukrainian people. Boychenko also described the scenario that the Russians are now implementing in Mariupol.

"The first plan is to bury these bodies in mass graves. The second plan is that they have set up a mobile crematorium, they are standing in the form of trucks, there is such a pipe in which they plan to put and burn these bodies, to hide their cynical crimes. And the third plan, they say, is that there is a large crematorium in Khartsyzsk, they want to take the bodies there and burn them," Vadym Boychenko.
