Residents of Mariupol abducted en masse and deported to Russia — the Mariupol City Council
The third part of all residents in Livoberezhnyy district of Mariupol has already been deported.
The City Council reports that the occupiers are forcing people, already exhausted by the war, to get on buses. There is also information that the Russian occupiers confiscated passports and other identity documents.
Meanwhile, buses that left Zaporizhzhia for Berdiansk on March 24, 2022, to evacuate Mariupol residents, have been blocked. The City Council is convinced that this is to prevent people from returning to the territory controlled by Ukraine.
