According to the former commander of the US Ground Forces in Europe, Lieutenant General, the Armed Forces of Ukraine can quickly liberate the city due to the lack of motivation of the russian military, problems in logistics and the lack of equipment.

In addition to fortifying Mariupol, the occupiers also began to mine the territory.

The occupiers urge not to turn on powerful electrical devices, because it seems that this is precisely why many houses have already been left without voltage, and for a long time. In fact, the residents of Mariupol are without electricity not because of this, but because of the consequences of russian shelling. Fire from the invaders is the main reason why networks, houses and infrastructure objects were damaged.

Residents of Mariupol under occupation tell the truth about reality – regarding electricity, threats by occupiers and electric heaters.

Currently, the situation in Bilohorivka is difficult. The village is constantly shelled, the russians drop air bombs on it, and systematically attack it. The settlement was completely destroyed.

Some russian “media” announced the death of a collaborator, the fake “deputy governor of the Kherson Oblast” kyrylo stremousov. Apparently, he died in a road accident. The First Deputy Chairman of the Kherson Oblast Council Yurii Sobolevskyi said that the information about stremousov’s death has not been confirmed. Maybe it was staged.
