Satellite Images Show Another Mass Grave in Mariupol

As Vladimir Putin’s troops continue their siege on Ukraine and the Russian government denies war crimes, new satellite images show the construction of another mass grave site in Vynohradne, Ukraine near Mariupol, which remains under constant attack. The discovery follows previous satellite imagery showing the construction of mass grave sites in Bucha and Manhush.

The new images reveal that a cemetery located at the site has been “expanded” over the past month and now includes several long parallel trenches that will likely become new gravesites, according to Maxar Technologies.

United Nations human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said Friday that the UN is seeing growing evidence of war crimes in Ukraine as it catalogs a “horror story” of violations perpetrated against civilians. Since launching its unprovoked invasion on February 24th, Russian forces have “indiscriminately shelled and bombed populated areas, killing civilians and wrecking hospitals, schools and other civilian infrastructure, actions that may amount to war crimes,” the UN said.

The UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine has documented and verified 5,264 civilian casualties — 2,345 killed and 2,919 injured.
“We know the actual numbers are going to be much higher as the horrors inflicted in areas of intense fighting, such as Mariupol, come to light,” the UN’s Bachelet said.

Russia said it took control of several villages elsewhere in the eastern Donbas region and destroyed 11 Ukrainian military targets overnight, including three artillery warehouses. Russian attacks also struck populated areas. Associated Press journalists observed shelling in residential areas of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city.
