Every Russian has learned about the Siege of Leningrad during WW2. Sadly, history has repeated itself, but now it’s the Russian government cruelly starving Ukrainian cities
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken drew an analogy between the Nazi siege of Leningrad during World War II and what the Kremlin is currently doing to the city of Mariupol in Ukraine. It is now without power and water supplies. Locals melt snow to drink water. On March 9, Russian planes bombed the maternity hospital in Mariupol; three people were killed, including one child, and 17 were wounded, Mariupol City Council said. For two weeks of the war, 1,300 people died in Mariupol, local authorities said.
