“russian invaders Plan to Hold a Sham Trial of PoWs in Mariupol on Ukraine’s Independence Day,” Vadym Boichenko

The mayor of Mariupol stated this at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.

“The invaders are transforming Mariupol’s Philharmonic Society, this pearl of the city that used to host festive events only, into a place of a sham trial of our prisoners of war and civilians.
