Almost 5,000 people have died since the beginning of the Russian invasion in Mariupol

At least 5,000 people have died in the city of Mariupol, in southeastern Ukraine, since the beginning of the Russian invasion, an adviser to the Ukrainian presidency, in charge of humanitarian corridors, told AFP on Monday.

“About 5,000 people were buried, but no one has been buried for ten days due to the continuous bombing,” said Tetiana Lomakina, estimating that “given the number of people who are still under the rubble (…) there could be about 10,000 dead”.
