Russia Kidnaps and Enslaves the Citizens of Ukraine

Several thousand Mariupol residents were forcibly deported to Russia

Over the past week, the occupiers illegally removed several thousand Mariupol residents from the Left Bank district and a storage facility in the sports club building. More than a thousand people (mostly women and children) hid there from the constant bombing. Fighting took place in these areas, and to save the lives of Mariupol residents, the Armed Forces of Ukraine withdrew from places of mass concentration of people, which the aggressor used.

The captured Mariupol residents were taken to filtration camps, where the occupiers checked people's phones and documents. After the inspection, some Mariupol residents were redirected to remote cities in Russia, the fate of others remains unknown.

"It is difficult to imagine that in the 21st century, people will be forcibly deported to another country. Russian troops are destroying our peaceful Mariupol, they have gone even further and started deporting Mariupol residents. All war crimes on the part of Russia should be punished the most severely," said Mariupol mayor Vadym Boychenko.
