Quote: "Group of the Mariupol Resistance have ‘denazified’ the Russian flag from Svoboda Square again. [The Ukrainian letter (Yi), which does not appear in the Russian Cyrillic alphabet, has become a symbol of the resistance.]

The occupying authorities either do not notice or pretend that nothing happened. Again. Little by little, that flag is turning into Mariupol’s version of Chornobaivka [the airfield near Kherson which has become legendary as a place where the Russians are always defeated]."

Details: Andriushchenko also reported that every day the occupiers have been removing the harvest from every silo and grain elevator in the Mariupol district in grain trucks.

"The grain trucks are marked with the region numbers 23 and 26 (Krasnodar Krai and Stavropol Krai, Russia). The stolen grain is taken through Mariupol towards Rostov-on-Don. The looting on a national scale does not stop. This is some of the same grain that Russia is so ‘sincerely’ offering to the international community for next to nothing," Andriushchenko noted.
