During the seige of Mariupol, the Donetsk Academic Regional Drama Theatre was bombed by Russian forces whilst hundreds of civilians were inside using it as an air raid shelter. An independent investigation by Amnesty Intrenational found this to be an intentional attack on civillians by Russian forces. The word "children" were painted clearly outside the building.
