Russians bombard Mariupol Drama Theatre despite word ‘children’ in large letters

The satellite images showed that there had been a noticeable word ‘CHILDREN’ painted in large letters on the ground next to the building of Mariupol Drama Theatre, which was bombarded by Russian invaders yesterday.

The relevant statement was made by Reuters, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Maxar Technologies, a private U.S. company, distributed satellite imagery that it said was collected on March 14 and showed the word ‘children’ in large Russian script painted on the ground outside the red-roofed Mariupol Drama Theatre,” the report states.

Maxar said it would distribute new images of the theatre as soon as it has them.

A reminder that, on February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin initiated a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops are shelling and destroying the key infrastructure facilities, launching missile and air strikes on residential areas in Ukrainian cities and villages, killing civilians in Ukraine.
