About 10,300 new graves were found in temporarily occupied Mariupol . Most of them are located in the cemetery in the Old Crimea.

This was reported  by The Associated Press  with reference to these satellite images. Since the beginning of March, a significant expansion of burial places has been recorded.

Currently, the total area with graves is more than 51,500 square meters. Journalists of the Agency for the Assistance of Drones conducted an investigation. They learned that the Russians had used heavy machinery to dig long trenches. Later they were buried.VIDEO OF THE DAYPlay Video

Now the graves look like earth mounds. Some of them have wooden crosses with names and dates on them, but mostly they are marked with small plaques with hand-scratched numbers. It is noted that some graves had several numbers at once, which indicates a larger number of remains in the grave.

The agency analyzed the available video materials and came to the conclusion that, on average, there is one grave for every six square meters. Journalists also studied data from cemeteries in the villages of Mangush and Vynogradne, where similar mass graves have been dug since March.

  1. Rashists are making themselves cozy and building defenses while the remaining Mariupol residents continue dying from starvation, disease, foul water and cold. The foul cesspool which is moskalis mafialand must be destroyed even if it does mean some semblance of a WW3. We can no longer turn a blind eye to this, and half-ass measures are unacceptable. Now is the time for all good people to come to the aid of Ukraine against this barbaric genocide.
