Crimes of Russcists worse than those committed by fascists – NSDC secretary

Russian crimes against civilians in Ukraine and what is generally referred to as “Russcism” have surpassed the atrocities of fascism.

This was stated by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, Oleksiy Danilov, during a national telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"At the National Security and Defense Council, we are now compiling a dictionary, and the word 'Russcism' already even exceeds 'fascism'. When there were fascists, they were even more tolerant of civilians. What’s happening in Mariupol, Kharkiv and other cities is modern Russcism, which, I emphasize, is even worse than fascism that we saw in the middle of last century," Danilov said.

He also recalled the bombing of a maternity hospital in Mariupol and the cynical remarks made by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

As of today, 85 children have died and almost 100 have been injured as a result of the Russian armed aggression in Ukraine, Ukrinform reported

On March 9, during an air raid, the aggressor destroyed a maternity hospital in the city center, a clinic, a children's ward, and a therapy unit in Mariupol.

On March 10, at a press conference in Antalya, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov acknowledged that the bombing of the clinic and maternity hospital in Mariupol was a purposeful move. He claimed the maternity hospital had allegedly been used as a base for the Azov Battalion.
