The number confirmed by the occupiers is 101 children killed in Mariupol during merciless Russian bombings of the city."
Quote from Vadym Boichenko, Mayor of Mariupol: "The occupiers’ list reveals that 101 children from Mariupol [were killed – ed.], 87 of whom can be identified.
This information allowed us to verify the number of children who died during the siege of Mariupol. It is a horrific number – 147 children. Sadly, we realise that this number may be even higher."
Details: Mariupol City Council added that it is publishing some of these documents, following the law "On personal data protection", taking into account the significance of the information.
Boichenko stated that the mayor’s office will submit documents that confirm that children had been killed to law enforcement agencies in order to record war crimes committed by the Russians.
