In Mariupol, the invaders are changing their movement control tactics: they dismantled stationary checkpoints, take out equipment, and take the military to other sectors of the front.
About this in Telegram Advisor to the Mayor of Mariupol Petr Andryushchenko said, Ukrinform reports.
“The occupiers have changed their tactics of movement control. Stationary checkpoints have been dismantled, leaving only checkpoints in the area of bridges. At the same time, control is more often used by mobile groups that suddenly appear in different parts of the city. The change of tactics is connected with the withdrawal of most of the military remnants of the invaders from the city to other sectors of the front. A banal lack of resources,” Andryushchenko wrote.
According to him, for the second day in a row, large columns of vehicles are leaving Mariupol and the Mariupol region in the direction of Berdyansk-Pologi.
“The mood among the occupiers – the military is far from the bravura propaganda statements. The unwillingness to continue participation in the war dominates, especially among the inhabitants of Donbass. Talk about the desire to surrender is becoming more frequent, especially after the news of their transfer to the direction of the fighting in Zaporozhye,” the mayor added.
As reported by Ukrinform, Mariupol Russian invaders forbade residents to move around the city without a certificate of filtration and a special pass.
Russian aggression caused one of the largest humanitarian disasters in Mariupol. The city is almost completely destroyed as a result of enemy shelling, there is no normal energy, water and gas supply. Since the beginning of the Russian invasion, about 22,000 civilians have died in the city. Currently, more than 100 thousand people remain in the blocked city.
