(RoyalPatriot.com )- Officials in Mariupol claim that satellite photographs acquired by Maxar reveal mass graves 20 times larger than a cemetery uncovered last month in Bucha. Officials say the location near the town of Mangush could contain 3,000 to 9,000 people, according to a Telegram announcement, and that 70 deaths have been discovered so far.
The burials first surfaced at the end of March, according to Maxar, and then grew in size in April.
Mariupol Mayor Vadym Boychenko said that Mariupol was the scene of the most heinous war crime of the twenty-first century and that the new Babyn Yar is here. Nazi soldiers massacred an estimated 33,000 Jews in the Kyiv ravine in 1941.
The mayor said that Putin is currently annihilating Ukrainians. In Mariupol, he has already slaughtered tens of thousands of residents. This will necessitate a profound response from the whole civilized world. Anything and everything must be done to halt this holocaust.
Mariupol, the besieged city, has been pounded particularly hard, as success there is a cherished goal for Russia. The conquest of the southern port city will give Moscow control of much of Ukraine’s southern coast and a land corridor to Crimea, which Russia took from Ukraine in 2014.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered his military to abandon its plan to raid the Azovstal steel complex in Mariupol, where tens of thousands of Ukrainian troops and civilians are tented, in favor of continuing to blockade the site.
“This is the case when we have to think, that is, we always have to think, and in this case even more so, about preserving the lives and health of our soldiers and officers,” Putin said on Thursday.
Putin explained that there is no need to climb into these catacombs and crawl underground through these industrial facilities,
Meanwhile, the US said that it would deliver Ukraine a new $800 million weaponry package and $500 million in direct financial assistance as Ukrainians attempt to fend off further Russian attacks in the country’s eastern and southern regions.
