Exhumation has actually come to a halt, with temporary street graves gradually turning into permanent ones.

Yet one more mass grave of around 100 civilian bodies killed by Russian bombing was discovered in Mariupol in Mariupol on June 27. Those corpses still remain under rubble.

More than 22,000 Mariupol residents have been killed since the start of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine on Feb. 24.

A new burial ground is found in the city every single week. Due to the large number of mass burials, the threat of an epidemic exists.


In Russian-occupied captured Mariupol, the invaders began the immediate demolition of houses without clearing the rubble, taking the bodies of the dead under the ruins to landfills.

Russia’s barbaric aggression has caused a huge a huge humanitarian disaster in the city. Russian shelling since the first day of the war, Feb. 24, has almost completely destroyed the city.
