Drone footage shows colossal damage as explosions hit factories in Mariupol
Drone footage released on Tuesday shows huge explosions at factories in the besieged city of Mariupol, Ukraine by Russian forces as the war rages on.
The besieged city of Mariupol in Ukraine has been under constant attack since Russian president Vladimir Putin launched an invasion of the country 28 days ago.
The Russian military took the south by force, hoping to create a land corridor between Crimea and areas of Donetsk and Luhansk which are held by Russian-backed separatists. Enter the port city of Mariupol, which is the barrier to that goal. Mariupol is and has since been surrounded by Russian forces and as many as 300,000 civilians are still trapped within the city. Russia demanded that Ukraine surrender the city, promising that they would create safe corridors for civilians to leave the city, but Ukraine refused.
Attempts at rescue for the trapped civilians have failed due to the complete loss of social services in the city. The latest drone footage released Tuesday, March 22, shows huge explosions at factories and industrial buildings, showing that the ruthless bombardment is not letting up.
