Humanitarian aspect:

  • Mayor of Mariupol Vadym Boychenko warned of a threat of outbreaks of infectious diseases in the city.According to the mayor, an epidemic in the city may be caused by the mass burials
    of those killed as a result of russian occupation, non-functioning sewage system, lack of garbage collection, and worsening weather conditions, including rising summer temperatures. "Our doctors report the dangers that may appear this summer include outbreaks of infectious diseases, dysentery, cholera, etc. These diseases could kill thousands of Mariupol residents," the mayor reported.
  • russian federation troops continue to carry outfiltration measures in occupied Mariupol. Commissioner for Human Rights Lyudmyla Denisova said that over the past week, russians have forcibly deported almost 3,000 Ukrainians to a filtration camp in Bezimenne, including more than 300 children. After conducting these filtration measures, the occupiers formed groups of Mariupol residents who were first deported to Taganrog and then to the poorest regions of russia. At least 10% of citizens who do not pass the filtration process are considered by the occupiers as being "dangerous to the russian regime." They are then arrested and sent either to former penal colony No 52 in Olenivka, Donetsk region, or to the infamous Izolyatsia (Isolation) prison in Donetsk, which is known for its use of long interrogations, torture, threats of execution, and coercion.
