Photos of the ruined Mariupol seaport were published on Telegram on Feb. 13 by Mariupol’s City Council, showcasing the forlorn devastation of the formerly bustling marine hub.
Prior to the Russian occupation, the Port of Mariupol was one of the largest in Ukraine and on the Sea of Azov, with a capacity of 18.8 million tons per year. It traded with 152 other ports in 60 countries around the world.
"A new grain terminal was set to be opened in 2022,” the city council wrote.
“It was going to become the biggest grain cargo processing complex in the country, but the Russian occupiers have ruined everything.”
The Port of Mariupol was occupied in June 2022.
