The cholera diseases that are ravaging Mariupol started to seriously threaten the units of the UAF deployed in the district of the city. This was reported by the head of the press service of the DPR Minstry of Defence Daniil Bezsonov.

“According to the head epidemiologist of Mariupol, over the past week an outbreak of cholera diseases has been recorded among the population. This is connected to an irregular water supply and also the lack of chlorine supplies from the Dnepro-Azot enterprise,” said Bezsonov.

He noted that the inspections that are carried out in the 36th separate marine brigade deployed in Mariupol revealed multiple violations in relation to the organisation of a water supply. The command of the UAF made a group of servicemen attend courses at the Ground Forces’ Military Academy in Odessa.

“At the territory of the academy, under the leadership of instructors from the Army of Great Britain, the military personnel will take part in courses concerning logistic support and catering services. I.e., the sanitary and epidemiological situation in the 36th separate marine brigade is so bad that the the command of the UAF needed the help of their European curators,” stressed Bezsonov.

As a reminder, earlier it became known that “Rospotrebnadzor” [Russian Federal Consumer Rights Service – ed] strengthened sanitary and quarantine controls on the border of Ukraine and Russia in connection with the outbreak of cholera in Mariupol.
