Report: Russia Used Chemical Weapons In Mariupol



On Monday, Ukrainian officials announced that Russia appears to have used chemical weapons in Mariupol during its invasion of Ukraine, as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky estimates that the city’s death toll was in the “tens of thousands.”

A unit of Ukraine’s National Guard, the Azoz Regiment, said in a Telegram post that the chemicals were dropped from an unmanned aerial vehicle in Mariupol.

“About an hour ago, Russian occupation forces used a poisonous substance of unknown origin against Ukrainian military and civilians in the city of Mariupol, which was dropped from an enemy UAV,” the post said, according to Newsweek. “The victims have respiratory failure, vestibulo-atactic syndrome. The consequences of using an unknown substance are being clarified.”

Zelensky called for stronger sanctions to be imposed on Russia in response to deter the use of chemical weapons.

“I would like to remind world leaders that the possible use of chemical weapons by the Russian military has already been discussed,” Zelensky said. “And already at that time it meant that it was necessary to react to the Russian aggression much harsher and faster.”

The news comes after Mariupol Mayor Vadym Boychenko announced that over 10,000 civilians have died in his city since Russia invaded Ukraine in late February. Boychenko told the Associated Press that corpses were “carpeted through the streets of our city” and that the final death toll could be over 20,000.

Zelensky similarly said that “tens of thousands” had died in the city.

“Mariupol has been destroyed, there are tens of thousands of dead, but even despite this, the Russians are not stopping their offensive,” Zelensky said in an interview with South Korean lawmakers.

      They have tried to imply that Zelensky is a Neo Nazi but can you imagine a JEW and his whole family being a Nazi? They also have implied that he was as crooked as the previous President. Let me ask you this, when was the last president we had that would go into battle zones (the only one ever was Washington in the American Revolution but he was not a President Yet)? The truth of the matter is, I wish we had a president like him, oh wait we had one, Donald Trump!

      I agree, believe nothing that Zelenksky says, he will do and say and anything to drag the USA in a war with Russia, he is a creep disposes of Opposing Parties, one person rule or Dictator
      I believe that the neo-Nazi in Ukraine’s have killed a lot of the Ukraine civilian people.
      Remember what one of the Freedom Fighters from the USA said about don’t turn your back on theses people, they thought they would be killer by these so-called Ukraine People. They got out by walking 5 miles, discarding their army packs etc. and crossing into Poland as civilians
      and these stories are from a lot of the People who went to fight for Ukraine.
      “Here is Gun and 5 rounds of ammunitions” now go and fight, what an insult.
      There is more to this WAR than taking over Ukraine bet on it. Putin knows more than everyone thinks. Remember what this WEST Media is saying is most likely only 10% correct, 85% wrong
      5% half truths.
