Miles de civís en Mariupol morreron o mes pasado




Thousands may have been killed in the southern Ukrainian port city of Mariupol since the bombing started four weeks ago. This was according to the U.N. Human Rights Mission’s head, who provided its first estimate on Tuesday.

Un portavoz do alcalde Vadym Borichenko afirmou este luns que preto de 5,000 persoas morreron en Mariupol, entre elas 210 nenos, desde que as forzas rusas tomaron o control da cidade hai un mes.

His office stated that 90% of Mariupol’s buildings were damaged or destroyed and that 40% had been destroyed. This includes hospitals, schools, kindergartens, and factories.”We think there could be thousands, of civilian casualties in Mariupol,” Matilda Bogner (head of the U.N. Human Rights Mission in Ukraine), said in a virtual interview.

She stated that the mission didn’t have an exact estimate, but was still trying to collect more information.

Segundo testemuñas, 300 persoas morreron polo atentado do pasado 16 de marzo no teatro Mariupol, onde se aloxaba a xente. Os funcionarios locais citaron testemuñas.

The U.N. human Rights office confirmed that 1,179 civilians were killed in Ukraine’s conflict over the past five weeks. This was despite reporting delays caused by hostilities.

Bogner stated last week that U.N. monitors received additional information regarding Mariupol’s mass graves, including one that contained 200 bodies.


Bogner stated Tuesday that “on the mass graves we’ve decided now that we should call it ‘improvised’.”

She explained that the term “mass graves”, which may refer to victims of a crime or people who died in Mariupol, could be misleading.

She said that civil casualties in conflict were thought to be “fairly small” in the improvised burials in parks and garden.

She added that some people who died naturally weren’t taken to individual graves or morgues because of hostilities. Others never made it to doctors.

Ela dixo que non estaba claro se había vítimas militares enterradas nos enterramentos improvisados.

Robert Mardini (director-general of the International Committee of the Red Cross) told Reuters separately that the ICRC had “no firsthand information” about the casualties of the Mariupol theatre attack.
