By the end of the year, more than 10,000 people could die from diseases and intolerable conditions in ruined Mariupol, and now the city has 150-170,000 inhabitants.

Boychenko’s direct speech: “The occupiers have turned Mariupol into a medieval ghetto. So the death rate will be relevant. Without medicine and medical care, restoration of water supply, and proper sewerage in the city, epidemics will break out.
Today, the majority of the current population is old and sick. Without proper conditions, mortality among vulnerable groups will increase exponentially.
Some residents of Mariupol from nearby villages have returned to the city because they are not allowed to enter the territory of free Ukraine due to a strict filtration system.
But the Russians continue the genocide that began on February 24. Our people are in mortal danger. Therefore, a complete evacuation of the city is needed. “
