Russian occupation forces continue to restore the port in the destroyed Mariupol. In particular, the Russians have raised two cranes from the seabed to clear the water area. This will make it possible to resume full-fledged shipping in the future.
This was reported on Friday, March 24, on the air of the national telethon "United News" by Petro Andriushchenko, an adviser to the mayor of Mariupol.
"This could lead to the port accepting vessels with a displacement of up to 20,000 tons," he said.
According to Andriushchenko, the occupants want to turn the port of Mariupol into a naval base. The enemy is now looking for ways to improve military logistics, and it is much easier for the Russian army to transport goods from Russia to the occupied territories by sea than by land.
From any port on the territory of the Russian Federation, the invaders can send ships with military equipment or ammunition to Mariupol.
"The Russian port in Yeysk is about 30 kilometers away by the sea. This is currently the shortest way to supply military equipment from Russia. It is also cheaper and faster," said the advisor to the mayor of Mariupol.-
