Aide agencies have been warning for weeks that amid the Russian invasion the Ukraine is facing a “humanitarian catastrophe.”
Sasha Volkov, the deputy head of the International Committee of the Red Cross’s delegation in Mariupol, described horrific scenes in the city.
She said, “Some people still have food, but I’m not sure for how long it will last.
“Many people report having no food for children. People started to attack each other for food.
“People started to ruin someone’s car to take the gasoline out.”

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) claimed civilians who have been evacuated by the Russians are being funnelled through camps, such as one in Dokuchaievsk, in Donetsk, to then be moved onward to Russia.
The MoD warned, “A number of northern regions are mentioned as the final destination, including Sakhalin.
“Ukrainians are being offered official employment through employment centres.
“Those who agree receive documents banning them from leaving Russian regions for two years.”
Ukrainian MP Inna Sovusan told Times Radio, “They’re taking Ukrainian citizens, sending them through what are called filtration camps, and then relocating them to distant parts of Russia to work for free.

The city council added, “People who are being forcibly taken to Russia are being stripped of their Ukrainian passports and given a piece of paper that carries no legal weight and is not recognised by the entire civilised world.”
