The UN Office for Human Rights has a mission in Ukraine and those observers suspect that thousands of civilians have been killed in the city of Mariupol, what has been one of the main theaters of attacks amid the invasion of Russia.
The chief of the observers, Matilda Bogner, spoke from Geneva where he stated that they will only be able to corroborate that information when they have access to Mariupol.
So far throughout the country UN confirmed the death of 3,400 civilians, but says that the “actual figures are much higher, as the black hole is Mariúpol”with which he asks to enter that locality.
The observers of the UN have made different routes, especially in regions close to Kyivand point out that in addition to the murders they have documented another type of selective executions, torture and sexual violence.
