Almost 170,000 residents of temporarily occupied Mariupol are starving — Ukrainian Ombudsman
As the Verkhovna Rada Human Rights Commissioner Liudmyla Denisova informed, “almost 170,000 residents who remained in temporarily occupied Mariupol are starving. The city is catastrophically short of food.
At the same time, the occupiers boast that in one day they delivered and distributed 3,500 food kits and provided hot meals to 6,000 people, which is 6.5% of all residents of the city.
During the two months of the blockade, the Russians did not allow any humanitarian convoy of food from Ukraine or international organizations to enter Mariupol.
Such actions of the Russian Federation are the genocide of the Ukrainian people in accordance with the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and Article 6 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.”
