This is a dispatch for history. About a mass grave of children. One killed on the soccer field. Another so young that an umbilical cord is still attached. By the last two international journalists in Mariupol, risking their lives to write. @ap https://t.co/T9eKWb6t2U— Jodi Kantor (@jodikantor) March 16, 2022
Ukrainian civilians wrote the word "children" on the ground outside a drama theater in the besieged city of Mariupol where hundreds of civilians are hiding – pleading Russian pilots not to bomb.— Jack Detsch (@JackDetsch) March 16, 2022
Russian forces ignored the pleas, bombing the theater earlier today.
Drama theater in Mariupol. City destroyed by Russians with particular cruelty. Thousands of civilians in the theater. The inscriptions "children". And 🇷🇺 "special operation" to drop a huge bomb on it. Now let's discuss the "merits" of 🇷🇺 culture & the fear of WW3 in a Berlin cafe pic.twitter.com/M0UA8SqbVp— Михайло Подоляк (@Podolyak_M) March 16, 2022
Nie wiadomo ilu cywilów i dzieci zginęło w teatrze w Mariupolu. Wiadomo natomiast, że Ruskie popełnili tę zbrodnię z pełną premedytacją. Po obu stronach budynku napisano po rosyjsku widoczne z powietrza słowo: dzieci. https://t.co/g5gqYkixJ1 pic.twitter.com/uEY0lC9rRx— Sławek Wikariak (@S_Wikariak) March 16, 2022
Slawomir says in Polish: “It is not known how many civilians and children died in the Mariupol theater. It is known, however, that the Ruskies committed this crime with full premeditation. On both sides of the building, a word visible from the air was written in Russian: children.”
