The number of graves at Mariupol's Starokrymske cemetery on the western side of the city has significantly expanded, according to new satellite imagery published by U.S. satellite imagery company Maxar.

The company published two satellite images of the cemetery side by side, one from March 29 and the other from Nov. 30, which shows a large addition to the number of grave sites.
