Russian invaders pile bodies of Mariupol residents at supermarket

Russian invaders are piling the bodies of the fallen Mariupol residents, which were exhumed or washed out from the ground, at a local supermarket.

The relevant statement was made by Advisor to Mariupol Mayor Petro Andriushchenko on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“In the premises of Shchyryi Kum supermarket on Svobody Avenue, Russians set up a corpse landfill. Literally. Russians are bringing here the bodies of the fallen, which were washed out from graveyards when they attempted to restore water supply and partially those that were exhumed. They are simply piling them like waste,” Andriushchenko wrote.

In his words, there is a disastrous lack of people to carry out burial works, and even improvised morgues. Andriushchenko also posted a terrible photograph provided by the local Telegram channel, ‘Mariupol Now’.

A reminder that the Russian armed aggression caused one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes in the city of Mariupol. At least 22,000 civilians were killed in Russia’s artillery and air strikes. Now the city is lying in ruins and has been left without power, water and gas supply services.
