The total power of TNT shells fired at Mariupol is more than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

This is stated in a message on the Telegram channel of the Mariupol City Council.

“The Russians have been continuously shelling Mariupol from howitzers, missile systems, tanks, ships and aircraft for more than two months. They probably also used FAB-1000 and FAB-3000 anti-bunker bombs. The power of the TNT equivalent of shells fired at the city is more than the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima “, the message says.

Mayor of Mariupol Vadim Boychenko noted that the occupiers are intimidating the world with weapons of mass destruction, but in fact they have already carried out mass destruction of civilians in Mariupol.

“The Russian army has committed a crime against humanity. This is a fact. This is the largest genocide in Europe since World War II. We estimate the number of victims at a minimum of 20,000 people. But the recording of more and more mass graves suggests that this estimate is not final,” he stressed.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russian troops surrounded Mariupol in the early days of a large-scale invasion of Ukraine.

It also became known about the start of  an operation to rescue  the defenders of Mariupol blocked on the territory of the plant.

According to the MOU, on May 16, 53 seriously wounded were evacuated from Azovstal to a medical facility in Novoazovsk. Another 211 people were taken to Olenevka through the humanitarian corridor. An exchange is planned to return them home.

  1. Orcs killed more in Mariupol in under three months than nazis did in several years.Pray for the immediate and safe return of the defenders as well as civilians carted off to Rashist concentration camps.

  2. Killing and destroying is a ruskie specialty. We see how the shithole looks like.
    I often wonder; when will the criminals run out of ammo?

What is your opinion?
