SAVE Mariupol

According to Mariupol Deputy Mayor Serhiy Orlov, the most difficult problem is helping the city’s exhausted residents. The main problem is food. So far, the Russian military does not allow any humanitarian aid to be brought into the city. Local authorities hoped that on April 1, the International Committee of the Red Cross would bring humanitarian aid. However, the Group of the International Committee of the Red Cross has not been able to get to Mariupol and is under siege by the Russian military. The ICRC’s mission had to evacuate civilians and bring them in the most necessary assistance. Currently, the surviving residents of Mariupol stay in basements and bomb shelters due to constant air and artillery shelling. There is a real starvation in the city. “People eat three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.”

The Russian President Vladimir Putin has allowed Turkey to evacuate people by the ships on April 3, but just foreigners.
