News denied by the commander in chief of the forces of Kiev and the deputy mayor of the city, according to which the Ukrainian troops are resisting. For the mayor of the city, Vadym Boychenko, civilian victims are over 10 thousand. As for the use of chemical weapons, the United States does not yet confirm the reports of a possible use in Mariupol, the port on the Sea of Azov, under siege for over a month. “We are aware of reports circulating on social media that Russian forces have deployed a potential chemical weapon in Mariupol. We cannot confirm this at the moment but we continue to monitor the situation closely,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said. “If true, these news would be deeply troubling – Kirby stressed – and reflect the concerns we have about the potential Russian use of a variety of ‘riot agents’, including tear gas mixed with chemicals, in Ukraine”.
