Occupied Mariupol is again on the verge of a humanitarian catastrophe, as at least 40% of high-rise buildings do not have centralized heating and electricity.

This was announced by the adviser to the mayor of Mariupol, Petro Andriushchenko, on the air of the United News telethon.

Andriushchenko noted that the lack of light and heat is the No. 1 problem in the city today.

"Mariupol is entering winter again, and again on the verge of a humanitarian catastrophe. As of today. There are certain nuances related to the conduct of hostilities. And due to the recent storm, the occupiers still cannot fix the power supply, so the systems are turned off, and there is no central heating. This is the number one problem in the city today," said the mayor's adviser.

He clarified that 40% of houses without heat are high-rise buildings.

"We hope that in the end, the occupation authorities will put the heat in order, and there will be no such 'cold freeze' as it was last year," Andriushchenko added.

Recall that at the end of November, it was reported that residents of Mariupol were freezing without heating, because the invaders did not allocate money to replace pipes. Hundreds of houses are without heat.
