Novoazovsk – Ukraine does not consider the residents of Mariupol its citizens and allows the nationalists to use them as a human shield, Oleksandr Marunchenko, chief physician of Novoazovsk city hospital said on Wednesday.
“As I understand, Russia, when planning this operation, used the experience of the Syrian operation. Even the Islamic State terrorist group [banned in Russia] treated the civilians there as their own citizens. As their own,” Marunchenko told reporters.
Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will hold a meeting with President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Peter Maurer in Moscow on Thursday.
The agenda includes the discussion of key areas of the ICRC’s work in the field of humanitarian response. The parties will discuss in detail the issues of providing assistance to those in need in Ukraine, the Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics, as well as the organization and functioning of humanitarian corridors, the statement read.
“The Russian side welcomes the committee’s mediation efforts in Ukraine in accordance with its current mandate. We are convinced that Maurer’s visit to Moscow will further strengthen cooperation between Russia and the ICRC in this area,” the ministry said in a statement.
Brave Ukrainian Fighter Attempts Mariopul Exit in Women’s Clothing
The Greeks are less the impressed with the Ukrainazis.
The battle for the Greek-founded port city of Mariupol has become a major focal point of the war, with as many as 15,000 Ukrainian troops and National Guard fighters, including the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, battling against the Russian military and Donetsk separatists.
Up to 150,000 civilians also remain trapped in areas controlled by Ukrainian forces and as much as 80% of the city has been destroyed by Russian bombardments.
“Well, for one thing, they are hiding behind civilians. And secondly, as we evacuate civilians, they try to escape disguised as civilians, to our side here, to blend in somewhere and get away,” Donetsk People’s Militia battalion commander Oleg Kokarev said.
My husband made the comment that the thug likely killed the woman to steal her clothes. That’s his opinion.
The Greeks in the area are much more aligned with the Russian separatists- since both groups have been abused/mistreated by the Ukrainians.
