The leaders of the self-organization committees of the population were instructed to urgently collect data on the needs for firewood and coal.
Russian invaders are not preparing to heat Mariupol in winter.
This was announced by the adviser to the mayor of Mariupol Petr Andryushchenko in Telegram .
“Despite the loud statements about preparations for the heating season and the restoration of boiler houses, the heads of the self-organization committees of the population and quarterly officers were instructed to urgently collect data on the need for firewood and coal, primarily in private houses, even gasified ones. This is a direct signal and recognition of an obvious fact – There will be no heating in winter,” he stressed.
Andryushchenko added that this situation is developing “not even because of the unwillingness of the occupiers.”
“Purely technically. All boiler houses in Mariupol have long been modernized and switched to a single type of fuel – natural gas. It is impossible to restore gas supply to Mariupol by repairing the huge damage to gas pipelines: both main and home. Gas supply threatens to turn the city into explosives. Use or it is unrealistic to rebuild boilers for a different type of fuel – solid – by winter. Therefore, winter is not far off, and it will be without heat in the houses, “says the mayor’s adviser.
Regarding the possible “plan B” of the occupiers, Andryushchenko noted that the most likely push for deportation to Russia in the coming months.
“In addition to heating, this hypothesis also includes a partially artificial crisis with water and humanitarian aid. The occupiers in Mariupol do not need the townspeople in such numbers. Only the minimum that is needed to service the military transport base around the port,” the adviser added.
