Palamar's quote: "Last night there was just a huge number of phosphorous bombs: 50 air strikes, missiles, artillery and everything that a barbarian can use against humanity."
Details: The Ukrainian military has estimated that during the 64 days of the war, Russia has lost equipment worth $ 162 million in Mariupol, and that the occupiers have spent $288 million on ammunition and aircraft.
According to Palamar, Russia's losses in this single Ukrainian city amount to more than 1 billion 111 million dollars. The Russian occupying forces could have spent this money on building schools or hospitals, on providing a decent old age for their pensioners, but they chose to spend it on the destruction of Mariupol.
"I call on the military-political leadership to take decisive action to lift the blockade or evacuate all those who hope and believe in the Motherland. Today I will say that not only is Mariupol Ukraine, but also that Ukraine is Mariupol," Palamar concluded.
