    The Ukrainian city of Mariupol was a major strategic target for the Russians.

    Thousands of civilians had died by the time Mariupol fell to the Russians in May and much of the city had been destroyed.

    Recent satellite images from Maxar show that three mass burial sites near Mariupol have been growing since Spring.

    The Centre for Information Resilience analysed the images of Staryi Krym for the BBC's Panorama programme and concluded that 1,500 new graves had been dug there since it last analysed images at the site in June.

    It now estimates that more than 4,600 graves have been dug there since the beginning of the war, although it says it cannot know how many bodies are buried at the site.

    Survivors in the city have spoken about their experiences.

    'Mariupol: The People’s Story' is on BBC iPlayer now for UK audiences, and will be shown internationally from 9 November:

    Thank you bbc for giving the victims of the Kremlin fascist the light… May these innocent rest in peace💐

    Light Blue says:

    The utter disposable display of the Kremlin fascist bots to come to the comment section reporting on the Kremlin fascist terror and then to celebrate it or excuse it…

    Xavier Brun says:

    @O V not the Russians who bombed it?

    Space says:

    I’m proud of you for being able to handle big black cocks.

    J Turtle says:

    @O V how? Did they bomb the city?

    O V says:

    @J Turtle of course. The tanks and artillery were placed in the courtyards, on the roofs, in the arches on ground floor. They created positions in the flats.

    Kamle Harris says:

    This is more reason to hold Vladimir Putin and all his leaders accountable for war crimes against humanity and Ukraine as soon as possible my condolences to all the deceased ukrainians and victory to Ukraine

    Kermit Idiothunter says:

    @Patel Group nope…I prefer going down on shaven

    Ananya Raizada says:

    @Kermit Idiothunter so, 58,000 deaths don’t matter to you. What’s this satanic view? That it’s only horror when 1 million people die, 58k is a small number. 😞😞

    J Turtle says:

    @Jacob Klein whataboutism is a standard Kremlin technique.

    Light Blue says:

    @çõłłîņ Whataboutism doesn’t help anyone.

    Light Blue says:

    @mexes rexes Whataboutism doesn’t help anyone.

    Cranjis Mcbasketball says:

    The stories of the horrors that they have lived through is heartbreaking! How any soldier or person could condone any of the actions towards these citizens is just sick!

    Kermit Idiothunter says:

    @Crymea a river ooooh…that old argument 🤣🤣🤣🤣. There’s enough of us that can, and still kick your Ruski arse

    Kermit Idiothunter says:

    @Crymea a river because, in the West, we value life, unlike Putler

    Crymea a river says:

    @Kermit Idiothunter kick arse? Did your government acknowledge the death of those americunt mercenaries on the frontline? No, they didn’t 😂 want to go next?

    Ed joash de leon says:

    After Mariupol comes Kyiv 🤡
    GO RUSKIES🔥

    Steven Baer says:

    Very extremely brave little kid to share what he shouldn’t have to see. This is actually unforgiven Vladimir Rasputin, you wicked, arrogant, ambitious, tyrant? He’s life is actually numbered by the Almighty God himself in judgement day.

    Malin Ericson says:

    As a mother and a preschool teacher it is heartbreaking hearing children go threw this pain, horror and trauma. It’s not only soldiers that will have PTSD from this barbaric war. Children and civilians will also be effected. I hope they get every help they need. I don’t understand how Puthler can sleep at nights? May all the slaughtered ukrainian people haunt him at night until the end of his days. Slava Ukraini!// Love and light from Sweden 🙏🏼🇸🇪❤️🇺🇦🌻💪🏼

    The Kremlin fascists can not sleep with all the innocent they have murdered. Glory to Ukraine is heard from all across the just and humane world! 💛💙🌻🌏🌍🌎

    Light Blue says:

    @today The Kremlin fascists are putting children from all across the world at the risk of starvation by holding wheat exports hostage

    Light Blue says:

    @കമല ദളം Whataboutism does not help anyone. The Kremlin fascists are illegal occupiers planning to genocide a whole people simply for being sovergin and democratic.

    Elizabeth Njoki says:

    These stories are so heartbreaking 😥
    May justice be found for the innocent civilians killed in this senseless war .

    What a lovely post you have i know you do not know me before but didn’t be frightened your posts are exciting,but we are not friends on YouTube,.i sent you a friend request  but it didn’t go through,kindly send me a request let’s be friends if you don’t mind beautiful ❤.

    Xavier Brun says:

    @ Hunter Biden who brought up America?

    sailor67 duilio says:

    I can give you current information. My wife came back from Mariupol three weeks ago. She went to find her mother. She has a number of a common grave. Our home is destroyed, burned to cinders. We left Mariupol after the bombing (rocket) on 25th January 2015, the bombing that killed 31 people. But my wife’s mother stayed behind. My wife told me that some areas have some electricity, most areas do not have water, food is available. Everything was destroyed all places where our friends lived have gone, friends have gone. The russians are repairing what can be repaired, rebuilding, putting new windows/doors. It’s sickening, killing people and destroying their livelihood stating that they are there to save them. When you talk to russians in Russia showing them photos they do not believe you saying that they are fakes. It makes me angry their attitude so detached that I want/hope that the Ukrainians do the same to them. I do not think that there will be any reconciliation for a long time…and I’m not Ukrainians. It is a very divided and sorry country. We need to help them in defend themselves and rebuild for them.

    ahmedalsharman says:

    😂🤤😂 stop spreading fake stories.. it is the Ukrainian Nazi’s who destroyed the country .

    Carole Kjellander says:

    Thanks for sharing. Even from a distance, I am angry that crazy, greedy people like Putler’s dystopian society of criminals and psychopaths can destroy the lives of so many beautiful people just living their lives.

    Ranger says:

    Indeed Ukraine is now a divided country where western part want to be with west (eager to join Nato to host military base of west to act against Russia) and eastern part mainly inhabited by ethnic Russian want to be with Russia after maiden coup of Kiev in 2014 and countinue shelling for 8 years by Kiev force. Russia intervene only after SOS from ethnic russian inhabited in eastern part in the same way Nato intervened in Kosovo in 1999.

    Cheeba Cheeo says:

    And yet we have not labeled russia as a terrorist nation even everything happens in our plain sight. This is sickening, I’m so ashamed to be part of this as being a human being 🤮😠

    The German Empire says:

    It’s warfare, it happens unfortunately, Terrorists where no uniform and kill civilians without mercy, Russia is just unfortunately hitting Civilians with there weapons, but this same thing happened in WW1 and WW2 and wars before it’s warfare it happens sadly

    O V says:

    There should be a reason for not labeling Russia as terrorist nation? I guess it’s because it is not? Of course it is not but BBC won’t tell you that 🤫

    Андрей Каминский says:

    If you weren’t so stupid, you would understand that there are no such things as terrorist nations. There are criminal people, criminal governments, but not nations. You seem to be one of those fools who judge people by nationality. You should think about your problems first of all, you are a really pathetic person, this needs to be corrected.

    Jake Kim says:

    Nobody prevented you from doing so…

    Mark Zaicos says:

    If this crime was committed by a non nuclear armed country/regime, the UN or NATO/Coalition would have stopped the aggressor long before this city was wiped off the earth. More people from all over the world need to see this video and what Russia has done to innocents. Thank you for sharing this story BBC.

    Sonik Kis says:

    @DoctorChained they think they are

    Martin Rolecek says:

    Mark Zacois still waiting for Bush, Blair and every soldier deployed in Iraq to be sentenced for war crimes. Untill that is done west has no right to claim anyone done anything wrong even if they did

    Андрей Каминский says:

    @Martin Rolecek Why not? Everyone has the right to say what they want. The problem is that the supporters of peace do not have this opportunity and the media is occupied by jingoists and propagandists of war.

    D C says:

    @DoctorChained yes they are.russia needs sorted out .putler is another hitler .u fool

    RWafpre says:

    @Sonik Kis Explain it to me Boris, what about the mere fact that the US and NATO exists gives Russia the right to steal territory from another country, carpet bomb their cities, and steal their children? NATO would probably have gone away all on its own within a few years if Russia hadn’t been threatening its neighbors.

    And here I am, arguing with a Kremlin sock puppet.

    I’m very sad for

    Kid in Palestine
    People: Why TF this terrorist is still alive? Kill this terrorist as soon as possible
    Hypocrisy of the world 😏

    mryikes says:

    @Sonik Kis yeah, you missed a lot.

    but don’t worry about it, you still will be left in your own tiny world where you think you know just everything. 😊

    J Turtle says:

    @Sonik Kis when Putin’s regime ends, there will be peace.

    Jo Simpson says:

    It’s incomprehensible that one person is solely responsible for so many deaths and thousands and thousands of lives utterly in tatters. It is bad enough that adults are having to endure this horror but no child should ever be exposed to this. It’s so heartbreaking. God this war must end, we must have peace 🙏❤️

    Iain Elliott says:

    It is absolutely essential that our New Prime Minister sends the American truckers tanks and cruise missiles so they can quickly kill Biden and his fellow Nazis and perverts who believe in climate change and restore democracy and Donald Trump to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN and prevent these wars

    Jo Simpson says:

    @Gay christian Lol. You wouldn’t know whether I slept through ‘iraq n libya war’ or not.
    I did sleep through your ridiculous and predicable comment though. Don’t act surprised troll. You are probably used to getting that!

    Jo Simpson says:

    @William Well there will be many millions worldwide cheering on when that piece of evil $hit is taken out. Sounds like he’s got Parkinson’s anyway – plan B!!!

    Jo Simpson says:

    @Sonik Kis It must be excruciatingly painful for you – not to mention humiliating – that a former comedian and his people living in a country x28 times smaller are still standing in spite of what Russia has done to them. Some military you’ve got there – targeting civilians and the vulnerable. That’s Russia for you!

    chris j says:

    @Sonik Kis The Banderites are in charge

    José Antonio Rivera says:

    Early in the morning and I’m crying. I can feel the pain and suffering of the Ukrainian people. They are the one’s mostly affected by these nonsense war by Putin. Imagine seeing your loved one one day and the next day their gone just like that- collateral damage indeed. This war must end now!

    I speak Russian, so I understand what that little boy is saying, how he is mispronouncing words, because he is so young. And it makes it all sound even more awful for me 🙁 And the fact that somewhere there sat a Russian soldier who was firing at that theatre knowing that inside were women, elderly and children like this little boy, who looked just like them, spoke the same language… And he still fired his shot. I will never understand this.

    It is pretty simple they firing at military objects and Russians wanted to help civilians
    If they didn’t kill those who used civilians as a human shield they would kill more and more

    Adrian Campbell says:

    I remember a little girl who was streaming live video when Mariupol was attacked, she walked down the hallway full of glass and blood of her apartment complex and went to a window to see her parents that went out to get water. She said there’s my parents down there on the street and you could see them. just then a cruise missile hit the building as she was filming, there were no Ukrainian soldiers in the area as far as I could see and you could see a long way from the window of the high rise.the girl was maybe 10 years old, lost her arm, the hand of the other arm, and her leg, and to be there watching as the blast hit her 💔it broke my heart very badly even to think about again 😓😓her parents were both killed by additional artillery strikes that followed. I used to admire Russia, even Putin for being a strong leader, their aircraft, the AK-47, Tanks and military like Wagner. I became very disgusted with Russia and began to love a people that I never really thought about before. There is no goodness in the Wagner commander, Putin, the old hardliners and generals, Mariupol is the site of thousands and thousands of atrocities that I’m sure Russia did their best to cover up with their burials, Slava Ukraine 🇺🇦💪 вигнати тих росіян найагресивнішим способом

    Gosh seeing the devastation again in Mariupol is just so sickening it still fills me with the horror it did at the time.

    It is ok now, Russia liberated us from evil
    Thank you for your support ❤

    Western propaganda, there are lots of people in Mariupol (~100k). The city is being rebuilt from scratch.

    George says:

    People need to remember what has happened to Mariupol, and what continues to happen in territories under Russian control, and the continued attacks on civilian targets, when they raise the question of Ukraine entering into any “peace negotiations” with Russia. We need to help as many Ukrainians to survive the coming winter. We need to provide them with the means to defend themselves against continued aerial bombardment. We need to force Russia to stop the war of agression.

    Сергей Монин says:

    Mariupol citizens are happy now 😄 It’s a pro-russian city. People are getting new homes.

    William says:

    Yes, the new pro Russian mayor appointed (not elected) by Moscow has just moved into a fabulous new villa specially built for him. Unfortunately everyone else is still waiting.

    Alex N says:

    So hard to listen to that strong boy explain the bombings. To see the horror in his face when he remembers that day.. its sad to see. No child should go through such horrific events.
