Dmytro Zabavin, a member of the Mariupol City Council, says that Russia is trying to increase the capacity of the city’s port to bolster military logistics to the temporarily occupied territories

He shared the information on Espreso TV.

"The occupiers are not using the port of Mariupol to the capacity they expect. They declare what they bring to the port as construction materials and humanitarian aid. However, we are all well aware that part of what they bring to the port of Mariupol is military equipment and weapons," said Zabavin.

The official also added that Russian forces use some building materials brought to Mariupol for the construction of defense structures.

"The Russians are trying in every way to hide the fact that they are delivering weapons to the port of Mariupol. Accordingly, they want to increase the port's capacity in order to bring in even more weapons for the war. Also, if we talk about the construction materials they transport to the port, some of these materials are indeed used to build new houses. However, they use the other part for the construction of defense structures in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine," he added.

  • On October 2, Planet.com compared satellite images for October 2023 and October 2022 and reported that Russia was building a highway from Rostov-on-Don to the temporarily occupied Mariupol.

  • On October 10, the advisor to the mayor of Mariupol, Petro Andriushchenko, said that Russian troops were planning the construction of a railway, expanding the road between Novoazovsk and Mariupol.
