New satellite imagery released by Maxar Technologies shows construction, demolition, and destroyed buildings in the Russian-occupied city of Mariupol in southern Ukraine.
Before and after images taken on March 29 and November 30 show a large protective screen around Mariupol’s main theater, which was shelled while being used as a civilian shelter in March.
Stockpiles of construction supplies can be seen near several of the shopping centers in western Mariupol, while some high-rise buildings, destroyed by strikes, can be seen to be demolished.
A new Russian military compound, with a Russian army slogan on the roof, can also be seen, while expansion to the Starokrymske cemetery can be observed, Maxar said.
Mariupol fell under control of the Russian military in May after months of bitter fighting and the surrender of the last remaining Ukrainian troops at the Azovstal steel plant. Credit: Maxar Technologies via Storyful
