Kremlin Forcibly Substitute Mariupol Citizens With Russian National Minorities 

Another wave: occupiers of Mariupol bring 300.000 citizens of the Russian Federation to the city

This became known from the documents of the occupation administration. According to the plan to "restore life" in Mariupol, the Russians plan to fill the city by 2035. These will be citizens of Russia who will take advantage of the mortgage program launched by the Kremlin.

In addition, the invaders are already removed into the occupied territory of Ukraine migrant workers and civil servants from depressed regions of Russia. At the same time, locals of Mariupol are forcibly deported to these depressed territories of Russia, the report emphasizes.

The Centre for national resistance reports that such actions are direct signs of genocide following international law. The Centre notes that all criminals must be brought to responsibility for the murders and destruction of the city.

Mariupol was a prosperous city in the Donetsk region with access to the sea of Azov, beaches and ports of national importance. As of January 1, 2022, the population was 425.681. On February 24, 2022, Russia began attacking Mariupol from the sea, land and air. The Russians killed at least 101 children in the city. In total, 87.000 confirmed deaths from the actions of the Russian army are known. Currently, the city is 90% destroyed, only the pain of the Ukrainian people and a point on the map remind of its existence.
