“Between February and the end of April, Mariupol was likely the deadliest place in Ukraine. The intensity and extent of hostilities, destruction and death and injury strongly suggest that serious violations of international humanitarian law and gross violations of international human rights law have occurred.”

The death of 1,348 civilians, including 70 children, has been confirmed in Mariupol. But the Mariupol city administration said that 22,000 have already died in the city and there were also a lot of mass graves.

“Bodies have been found in improvised individual or collective graves in yards, streets, and parks, in unattended houses and apartments. Many are still to be buried.”

In her report, Michelle Bachelet also stressed that the city’s residents had spent more than a month under siege: in basements without water, heat and medical care. During the active hostilities in the city, all hospitals were destroyed, damaged or destroyed before.

“The tragedy of Mariupol is far from over, and the full picture of the devastation caused is not yet clear.”
