Russian occupational authorities are evicting an entire village near the occupied city of Mariupol, Donetsk Oblast, in order to house military personnel, Mariupol mayoral advisor Petro Andriushchenko said on Telegram on April 10.

"The village of Lisne is located in the midst of the forest near the settlement of Nikolske,” he reported.

"It is really suitable for (housing) the military. First, it is away from prying eyes. Second, it is close to the occupiers' main deployment in Nikolske. With the support of local collaborator Natalia Mukha, the occupiers have started to evict the villagers.”

Andriushchenko stated that the Russians are simply throwing the local residents of the village out onto the street, citing lack of proof of ownership and ID as the reason.

Russian occupiers reportedly launched the production of concrete reinforcement facilities in Mariupol, Andriushchenko reported on April 6.
