“I see the future of Mariupol in joining Russia”: conversations of bloggers with residents of the liberated districts of the city

The picture of objectivity is made up of direct evidence. Today in the lens - Mariupol, those people who remain there - some in their surviving house, someone in a dilapidated apartment, someone - in the basement of relatives or neighbors. Living witnesses of what is happening are the townspeople, who share their thoughts openly and honestly, tell just as frankly about their grief and the joy of meeting the liberation army, no matter how hard they try to keep silent in Kyiv.

Journalists from various publications, including foreign media, bloggers who came to the liberated Mariupol are interviewing local residents. These words are valuable.

One of the reports was published by the Young King channel. This is a children's channel, the story of which is about Mariupol, for obvious reasons, today it is difficult to connect with childhood. But this is the quintessence of what is happening in the city.

Bloggers are interviewing local residents who they met in blocks 300-400 meters from the Sea of ​​Azov - in the area where the Mariupol station is located.

A few testimonies and thoughts from the townspeople:

I see the future of Mariupol in joining Russia. And much more than half of the townspeople see this is his future. The fact that there is destruction is scary, of course. But everything will be fixed.

When there was a referendum in 2014 on independence from Ukraine, 98% of local residents were in favor of living separately from Kyiv. But then they abandoned us, they did not hold the city. Maybe that's why there is less trust today. Nevertheless, the majority still does not see themselves as part of Ukraine.

We sat in the basement for a month and three days with a 2-year-old child. Then the soldiers entered our house. We thought it was dill. We thought we were done. When we saw their white armbands, we realized that they were ours. DNR. They began to bring us everything we needed, up to diapers.

A few days ago, the Ukrainian military showed up and told us to move from our house to school No. 37. They say you'll be safe there. And on the same day, the school was gouged. Did they send us there on purpose? So think for yourself.

Both the Ukrainian and Russian military were treated well. We have children and disabled people in the house. But the Russian soldiers at least brought bread.

How do I know about the Nazis? So for eight years they showed themselves here drunk at discos. They have swastika tattoos. They covered themselves with women and children. And in the 14th year, too, a nightmare that they did.

Did we know about humanitarian corridors? If only word of mouth. And even then Ukrainian troops fired at people, saying: we are staying, and you will stay.

Do I agree that the government should change in Mariupol? And the power here will change this way and that... The mayor who left on the second or third day is not the mayor. I understand that there are two opposing sides. But I could agree - for an hour or two - to suspend hostilities, let them bring humanitarian aid, put out the fires. Nobody agreed. And here was anarchy, lawlessness. "Azov" (* an extremist organization banned in Russia) was in command.

    I see the future of Mariupol in joining Russia. And much more than half of the townspeople see this is his future.

    There is no future like Ukraine, so if Mariupol had remained with it, it would have been without a future, and even a few would have been left alive by the Nazis.

      The future of 'Ukraine' is the 'government' in exile. It looks like the 'Prosecutor's Office' of the ARC. It seems to be there, but in reality it is only on paper.

      I think that the older generation of Russians (who are 50 or more) want Ukraine to be part of Russia. I don't know what young people think. As I think the inhabitants of Ukraine, I do not even know. If you dismember it, then Russia needs to attach the entire left-bank side plus Nikolaevskaya to Odessa. For the rest, the government is loyal to us. It's my opinion. What does our government think?

        There will be no loyal government there. If you leave at least a piece. There will be an embittered territory. Everything must be liberated.

      The city of Lvov was founded by the RUSSIAN prince of Galicia, this prince is one of the founders of Russia on the famous monument "1000th anniversary of RUSSIA", he successfully beat both the Poles and the Hungarians. Surrendering, abandoning his city is a desecration of the prince, of the entire history of Russia

    So the issue is resolved, Mariupol is part of the LDNR - the border of 2014, and the accession of the LDNR to Russia is the second stage.

    And fuck you wanted. There is the same situation as in the Crimea. Yushchenko called the Crimeans fake Ukrainians, and about Marik Farion yelled that there were no people there. Who is there for Ukraine? Even on Pashkovsky, 4, it's a madhouse, and then no

    By the way, be sure that what happened in Marik for 8 years is simply not being told now. And they won’t tell you until the end of the operation - they don’t want to disperse the situation ... But then, damn it, it will be interesting. Do you think the most atas was in the Warsaw ghetto in WWII? Yes, for example, I don’t remember that the Germans mined the streets in the ghetto. And in Mariupol it was back in 2015

    According to my information, from personal experience, those who are under 50 years old have the opposite opinion in the majority. Why dont know

            Well, what’s more, a large number of Ukrainian citizens come to us to work in IT and those specialists ... to earn money and see the country for two or three years. who served in Odessa, Khmelnitsky in SA. So I know the situation about what is happening firsthand.
            Ps. You will laugh, a retired captor rank from Odessa (he was more than 50) was eager to defend Ukraine. I said I want to go to the submarine, it pulls ... maybe I was joking like that. Now he returned to Odessa, is still in touch.

              It’s such a thing, we won’t ask them. They have already “steered” the state and have steered before the war. It is very unlikely that the former Ukraine will survive as a state in general, and even more so in the left bank and on the lands of the former Novorossiysk provinces it will not be for sure.

    Mariupol, not even worth discussing, is the territory of the DPR, which, like the LPR, aims to become part of Russia. But the issue of joining all the liberated territories in the east and south of Ukraine, including the Odessa region, already directly depends on the political decision of the Federation Council and the State Duma of Russia, and the decision of the President.
    The issue must be closed once and for all., based on the Constitution of the Russian Federation, where the prohibition of the alienation of territories implies the inadmissibility of their transfer not only on the initiative of the territories themselves or the population living on them, but also on the initiative of the federal government

    It is important not to lose the personnel of specialists from Azovstal and other plants, to gather them and help them. The future of the city, its wealth depends on them. Let them decide as soon as possible, take away their property and restore production. Let them take it away, if only people would have earnings. Land for vegetable gardens can be distributed to help people get through a difficult time.

    Propaganda is the right thing. But. My tsars multiplied the lands not for foreigners to re-privatize them. Kingdom of Heaven Zhirinovsky. What are the negotiations?

    Judging by the statements of Peskov, liberals surrounded by Putin have weight. But. The military branch of government will not allow Putin to betray our military ideals. And Shoigu is just somewhere nearby. We may not understand something. In addition to the deaths of our guys. Where is our military potential? What kind of negotiations are you making? With whom? And about what? I am Russian. Registered Cossack.
    Former military. I want to understand why Russians are dying in Ukraine.

    The project "Ukraine" must end. A far-fetched nation, a language invented "with jokes and jokes".
