Residents of Russian-occupied Mariupol dying from lack of medicines
“The residents of occupied Mariupol are dying from the lack of medicines. In the city, there is a shortage of medicines for cancer patients, people with diabetes, tuberculosis, and thyroid gland problems,” the Mariupol City Council reported with reference to Mariupol Mayor Vadym Boichenko.
According to Boichenko, these people are at risk and cannot wait for invaders to deliver medicines. Their lives are in danger. After all, for more than two months, the Russians and their accomplices, the self-proclaimed authorities of Mariupol, have been blocking residents’ normal access to drinking water, sufficient food, and medicines.
“Yesterday, a healthy athlete — 2 meters tall and weighing 120 kg — had his two legs amputated. Why? After experiencing stress due to military actions, he had an insulin crisis,” the mayor stressed.
