An adviser to the mayor of Mariupol Petro Andryushchenko noted on December 26, 2022, that Russian troops destroyed two streets in Mariupol (a city in the Donetsk region of Ukraine, east of the country), where many historical monuments of the 19th and early 20th centuries were located.

“The history of Mariupol destroyed by the Russians. Mykolaiv Street and part of Greek Street. A place of concentration of historical monuments of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Almost nothing was left behind. What survived the two World Wars of the 20th century did not withstand the “Russian liberation,” explained an adviser to the mayor of Mariupol Petro Andryushchenko.
The building of the former Mariinsky Girls’ Gymnasium in Mariupol, which opened its doors in 1876, has also been turned into ruins and included in the plans for destruction in the near future.
“The building that was burned by the Nazis during the retreat from Mariupol (although even historians doubt who actually burned Mariupol when it was liberated due to the realities of the occupation) and which was restored. Now Russian troops are completing what was started during the Second World War,” added Petro Andryushchenko about the destruction of the Mariinsky Girls’ Gymnasium in Mariupol.
