Residents of the occupied city are forced to hunt pigeons. Set traps from improvised means.
It is reported by the Mariupol City Council.
The reason is the lack of food. In order to survive, Mariupol residents began to set up traps for pigeons. People did the same during the Holodomor of 1932-1933. In particular, such traps appeared around 17 MKR. Birds, which were once fed by the residents at the drama theater, began to be eaten.
Mariupol residents are in the ghetto without normal drinking water and food. They cannot leave the city. The collaborators staged real hunger games for Mariupol residents. They brought the inhabitants to the point that they are forced to hunt pigeons. This is a mockery of people who lived a full life before the war - they did not know what hunger or lack of drinking water was. These terrible things are happening in the 21st century, in the heart of Europe, in full view of the whole world. This is the genocide of the Ukrainian people by a terrorist state,” Mayor Vadym Boychenko said.
Director of the Center for Primary Health Care No. 3 Alexander Lazarenko tells how dangerous it is for health to eat pigeons.
Pigeons are a nursery for many viral, bacterial and fungal diseases . In this connection, the meat can be infected. From it you can get histoplasmosis, encephalitis, ornithosis, salmonellosis, toxoplasmosis and other dangerous diseases. Such diseases are especially dangerous for children and the elderly. In the absence of proper medical care, this can even lead to death, the doctor warned.
The majority living in occupied Mariupol are elderly people. It is difficult to imagine how they survive in such conditions. Due to weak immunity, stress, lack of food, water and medicines, their health is at risk.
Mariupol took care of the elderly. They created conditions for them to meet a dignified old age. But the Russian occupiers took it away from them. Instead, they are forced to somehow survive without quality medical support, medicines and care. Most of them are children of the Second World War, for whom the Russians repeated what the whole world says "never again". Staying in the city is dangerous for their health, because they will be the first to suffer from infectious outbreaks, - said the mayor of Mariupol Vadim Boychenko.
