He also stressed that “ten other people were wounded,” before adding that “at the moment it is impossible to specify the exact number of victims in Mariupol and Volnovaja.” “The Russians will be held accountable for everything they have done on our land,” he concluded.

The war in Ukraine broke out on February 24 following the invasion order signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who days earlier had recognized the independence of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk (east), the scene of an armed conflict since 2014.
