The brutal shelling of Mariupol by Russian troops resulted in the death of Kyrylo, an 18 month old toddler. His parents rushed him to hospital, where medical workers desperately tried to save his life, but he did not survive.
Russian troops’ military blockade of Mariupol has been in place since March 1, 2022. Because of this blockade, there has been no electricity, water, gas, heating, or mobile communications in the city since March 3, 2022.
