President of Ukraine: Russia launching a false campaign to conceal their crimes in Mariupol

Ukrinform
Russia is launching a false campaign to conceal the mass killings of civilians in the city of Mariupol, which were committed by Russian troops.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his video address, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We must also be aware that after the revealed mass killings of civilians in the Kyiv region, the occupiers may have a different attitude to their crimes in another part of our country where they came. They are already launching a false campaign to conceal their guilt in the mass killings of civilians in Mariupol,” Zelensky told.

In his words, Russian invaders will do dozens of stage interviews, re-edited recordings and will kill people specifically to make it look like they were killed by someone else.

According to Zelensky, now the occupiers will try to hide the traces of their crimes.

“They did not do this in Bucha, when they retreated. But, in another area it is possible,” the President of Ukraine stressed.

A reminder that the Russian aggression has caused one of the largest humanitarian catastrophes in the city of Mariupol. Local residents were left without electricity, water, food products and medicines. Meanwhile, Russian invaders have been continuously bombarding unarmed civilians for over a month now. According to the recent data, about 130,000 civilians are remaining trapped in Mariupol.
