In Mariupol, tens of thousands of people were killed and many went missing, the fate of those who forcibly deported to russia remains unknown.

This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelensky in an interview with the BBC, Ukrinform reports.

Zelensky said:
We also have information that, in addition to the tens of thousands of dead, many are missing. We know that their documents were replaced, russian passports were issued and they were deported to russia - some to camps, some to other cities. Nobody knows what is happening to these people. No one knows how many were killed.

He also noted that the atrocities committed by russian troops in Mariupol and the suburbs of Kyiv: Bucha and Borodyanka, "further narrowed the possibility of peace talks with the russians."

As Ukrinform reported, on February 24, russian president vladimir putin announced the beginning of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops are shelling and destroying key infrastructure facilities, carrying out massive shelling of residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, rocket-propelled grenades, ballistic missiles and air bombs.

The invaders staged mass terror in the temporarily occupied territories.

The United States, the European Union, and a number of other countries have imposed and continue to impose sanctions on russia.
