Russian invaders destroy synagogue in Mariupol

Russian occupiers have ruined a synagogue in the besieged port city of Mariupol, Donetsk region.

Adviser to the Mariupol mayor, Petro Andriushchenko, broke the news of the incident on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.

“They have once again confirmed their shameful status as Ruscists. Russian ‘liberators’ are destroying everything on their path and have already surpassed the Nazis in the number of war crimes. Like the Germans during World War 2 they are destroying Jewish community buildings. In Mariupol, the Russian army destroyed the building of the ‘old synagogue’ and the community center. Real present-day barbarians!” reads Andriushchenko’s post.
