Hostages of the Russian Occupiers in Mariupol

On March 15, the occupiers took hostage 400 staff members of the Regional Intensive Care Hospital

The information was obtained through the head of the regional military-civil administration Pavlo Kyrylenko. A hospital employee was able to give him a brief note on the situation at the hospital.
"It is impossible to leave the hospital. They shoot hard, we sit in the basement. Cars have not been able to drive to the hospital for two days. High-rise buildings are burning around… Russians rushed 400 people from neighboring houses to our hospital. We can't leave."

In the last few days, the occupiers have been deliberately inflicting devastating blows on the hospital. Doctors and hostages continue to treat patients. However, in the basement.

There is little destruction for Russian non-humans - now they have made people hostages. I appeal to international human rights organizations to respond to these heinous violations of war norms and customs, to these egregious crimes against humanity. Russia and every citizen involved in crimes in Ukraine have to be punished!" commented Pavlo Kyrylenko.

We remind you that on March 9, the occupiers dropped bombs on an orphanage and a maternity hospital, killing a pregnant woman. The child was also not saved.
