Mariupol Under Russian Control on June 1

Trustworthy News Ukraine Conflict Improve the News


The city of Mariupol has been held under siege by Russian forces for the last several weeks.

The Guardian reports on 2022-03-22 that:

"Local authorities say 80% of the city’s infrastructure has been destroyed, some of it beyond repair. The city has been without water, electricity and heating, and it is impossible to count the number of deaths. This week, Ukraine rejected Russia’s ultimatum to surrender Mariupol."

Will Mariupol be under Russian control on June 1?

This question will resolve positively if more than 50% of Mariupol's raions* are under de facto Russian military control on June 1, 2022.

Resolution will be sourced from reputable media reports.

  • Note that Donetsk Oblast contains the Mariupol Raion, which contains the Mariupol Hromada, which contains 4 raions. This question is concerned with that innermost level of raions.
