More than 300 houses have been completely demolished after the occupation of Mariupol, exiled advisor to city mayor Petro Andriushchenko reported on June 26. He added that Russian occupation authorities have recently demolished two high-rises located at 77 and 79 Metallurhiv Ave.

"Now, instead of apartments and life, there are ruins," Andriushchenko wrote on his official Telegram channel.

Over the course of Russia's siege of Ukraine's southern city of Mariupol, over 2,000 residential buildings were heavily damaged, with around half of them now completely destroyed, Andriushchenko reported earlier.

In a city that was once home to more than 400,000 people, the UN estimates that up to 90% of its multi-story residential buildings have been damaged or destroyed.

Google Map imagery published on April 26 shows before-and-after comparisons of Mariupol, revealing the extent of devastation brought to the once-peaceful city.

Russian forces heavily bombed Mariupol from the start of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine. The city has been occupied by Russian forces since May 2022.
