Pensioners are dying in queues for pensions in occupied Mariupol — city council member Zabavin
Dmytro Zabavin, a member of the Mariupol City Council, notes that there are long queues for social benefits in the temporarily occupied Mariupol
He shared the information on Espreso TV.
"We continue to record long queues at the post offices of the so-called pension fund of Mariupol, where pensioners are simply dying in line. 200-300 people have been queuing since 4 am, and all this is happening on the street. There are more such queues for social security than there are people attending holiday displays set up by the occupiers. That is, there are more people in line to somehow survive than at the holiday displays. In the private sector, pensioners generally gather and queue up for 2-3 days," Zabavin emphasized.
The deputy of Mariupol City Council also added that there is a great shortage of medicines and many goods in Mariupol.
"The occupiers set up a Christmas tree on the square where there are fewer people than at post offices. They are luring people there with children's gifts to create a propaganda picture," said Zabavin.
- Advisor to the mayor of Mariupol Petro Andriushchenko said that Russian OMON (Special Purposes Mobile Unit) was intensifying patrolling and mobilization activities in the city.
