Despite denials by the Kremlin that their military has targeted civilian infrastructure, an investigation by CIR revealed clear evidence of harm to such targets in Mariupol. Our report focused on the targeting of a total of 36 schools and universities throughout the four city districts of Mariupol: Zhovtnevyi, Kalmiuskyi, Prymorskyi and Livoberezhnyi.
The report describes each individual school that has suffered damage from battles in Mariupol since the beginning of the Russian invasion. Contrary to the Russian government's denials, our work adds to the body of evidence showing how Russia has systematically targeted civilian infrastructure throughout the invasion.
