Western Claims of Russian Mass Graves near Mariupol another Fake News Hoax
MEDIA, 2 May 2022
25 Apr 2022 – I know, I Went To See.
According to Western media, now copy-paste reporting the same claims, Russian forces apparently secretly buried up to 9,000 Mariupol civilians in “mass graves” in a town just west of the city.
Except, it never happened, there is no mass grave.
It’s actually just a normal, small, cemetery…no pits, no mass graves, just an orderly cemetery whose grave diggers refuted Western claims.
On April 23, with journalist Roman Kosarev, I went to Mangush (Manhush in Ukrainian), found a normal cemetery setting, and spoke with the men responsible for burials, who refused the allegations and said they buried each person in a coffin, including, they noted, Ukrainian soldiers.
