The Russian occupiers in Mariupol are rapidly erecting a new commercial building for the sale of apartments on the site of the destroyed "House with a Clock".

In order to sell real estate, the invaders invented cynical advertising.

This was reported by the Mariupol City Council.

The statement states that in January 2023, instead of repairing, the Russian invaders erased the symbol of Mariupol - "House with a clock" - from the map of Mariupol.

In its place, the occupiers are rapidly erecting a new commercial building for the sale of apartments under mortgage.

The Russians advertise the favorable location of the new building in the city center as the last one, let's recall, was also destroyed by the occupiers.

"Thus, the enemy is trying to quickly populate the city with Russians, because the mortgage will be financially available only to more or less wealthy citizens of the Russian Federation," the city council noted.

They also reminded that the "House with a Clock" once housed the workshop of famous monumental artists Kuzmenkov and Konstantinov.

In 2021, the building was reconstructed.

During the Russian blockade, hundreds of local families hid in the shelters of the building.

The city council noted that, in general, during the blockade of Mariupol, the Russians destroyed almost 50% of the city's high-rise buildings.

52,000 families lost their homes.

It will be recalled that the residents of the destroyed "House with a Clock", on the site of which the Russians are building a multi-storey building under mortgage, remained simply on the street.
