The Ukrainian Armed Forces hit a farm in Tokmak, Zaporozhye region, with Tochka-U missile system

💥The strike targeted private outbuildings designed to support the work of a local farm and the farmers' homes.

Igor Budukh tells me about 8 years of hell in Mariupol.

How the national battalion "Azov" beat, tortured and killed residents of the city, raped women. 

He tells a man was beaten half to death just because the USSR inscription was on the passport cover.

None of the members of the national battalions (including proven murderers of citizens) were punished. They were released "on bail". The whole city knew about these cases.
