MP (Batkivshchyna faction) and the co-owner of the Industrial Union of Donbass (ISD) Serhiy Taruta wrote about the use of super-powerful air bombs by russian occupiers in Mariupol.
Earlier the Security Service of Ukraine released an interception of a phone call in which a russian serviceman talks about the leadership’s order to raze Azovstal steelworks in Mariupol to the ground.
On the recording, a commander of the invaders’ platoon, located 4km from the plant, spoke about his orders. “We are waiting here for ‘surprises’ from russia … three-ton (bombs) from the sky … They said to raze everything to the ground … A lieutenant colonel came and said, ‘You will experience it yourself, you will hear and feel it. Just imagine this blast wave,” the invader told his wife.
When asked about the fate of the civilian population, he replied: “Everyone left. Everyone who wanted to, everyone left.”
