The occupiers will limit the issuance of even a minimum set of food from July.
Advisor to the mayor of Mariupol , Petr Andryushchenko, told what the food ration, issued to the residents of the captured city, consists of as humanitarian aid from the occupiers.
He announced this on the air of the information telethon.
The mayor’s adviser noted that now in Mariupol, occupied by Russian invaders, the only source of food is humanitarian aid, which the occupiers give to the townspeople.
The limited set of products that the townspeople receive from the occupiers should be enough for a whole month.
“The food ration is mainly issued by the Russian Emergencies Ministry. There is a set of products, as they believe, for a month. It contains a bag of porridge, a bag of flour, four or five canned fish, four or five canned beef, a bag of pasta, three bags of sugar. On the other hand, these canned goods, we understand that people do not have refrigerators, they spoil in two days,” Andryushchenko stressed.
However, even such a set from July will not be able to receive the able-bodied population. In the future, able-bodied people will have to work for the occupiers in order to get food.
“Today it was announced that from July 1, humanitarian aid will be provided exclusively to people of certain categories of the population … The able-bodied population will be virtually deprived of the opportunity to receive assistance. This is some kind of coercion to cooperate and to forced labor,” Andryushchenko emphasized.
He added that the adult population should either sort out the rubble or sweep the streets.
“Perhaps they will pay money for this, but today they mostly pay with food rations,” Andryushchenko said.
As UNIAN previously reported, the situation in Mariupol is catastrophic , there has been no electricity or water in the city for a long time. It was practically destroyed by the Russian invaders.
Since the beginning of full-scale Russian aggression, at least 22,000 civilians have died in the once flourishing “capital” of the Azov region. Today, about 100,000 civilians remain “live” in the occupied city.
According to Mayor Vadim Boychenko, the epidemic situation in the Russian-occupied city is getting worse every day. Until the end of the year, 10,000 Mariupol residents may die from cholera and other diseases .
