More Than 2,000 Mariupol Residents Killed; 2 Ukrainian Mayors Abducted

HeadlineMar 14, 2022

The situation in the southern Ukrainian port city of Mariupol remains dire. The city reported over 2,000 residents have been killed, and humanitarian aid is desperately needed. On Saturday, a mosque sheltering 80 civilians in Mariupol was hit. Istanbul said Turkish nationals were among those seeking refuge in the mosque. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s foreign minister accused Russia of committing more war crimes by abducting two Ukrainian mayors, including Melitopol’s Mayor Ivan Fedorov.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said staff at the Russian-occupied Chernobyl nuclear power plant have stopped doing safety repairs and maintenance work due to “physical and psychological fatigue” from working nonstop for weeks on end.
