The relevant statement was made by Advisor to Mariupol Mayor Petro Andriushchenko on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“Large military vehicle columns have been driving westwards via Mariupol for four days in a row. The limited number of the military is remaining in the city, mainly to guard potential military objects (port, plants, railway),” Andriushchenko wrote.
A reminder that Russian invaders are building new fortification structures in Mariupol and planning to use civilian modular houses as a living shied.
The Russian armed aggression caused one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes in Mariupol. The city is practically lying in ruins and has been left without normal power, water and gas supply services.
