11 Ukrainian defenders face convictions in Mariupol in past week – Mariupol mayor adviser
In temporarily occupied Mariupol, Donetsk region, Russia has fabricated cases and sentenced Ukrainian prisoners of war to an average of 25 years in prison
This was shared by Petro Andryushchenko, an adviser to the mayor of Mariupol.
"This week, the invaders unlawfully imprisoned 11 Defenders of Mariupol on fabricated charges. They face an average sentence of up to 25 years each," he conveyed on Telegram.
The adviser to the mayor of Mariupol pointed out that the trials of the city's defenders in Russian captivity received little publicity.
"I'm unsure why there's no official response in the opposite direction. I don't know the proper course of action. What I do know is that all of this is unjust and shouldn't be happening," Andryushchenko expressed.
- On November 13, Russian invaders in Donetsk unlawfully sentenced Oleh Zavaletskyi, the commander of a separate engineering and sapper platoon of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, to 30 years in prison.
