Satellite images recently released on Thursday appear to show the existence of a new – and growing – mass grave site outside the Ukrainian city of Mariupol.

The site is located at the northwest corner of Manhush, a town about 20 km west of Mariupol, and spans an already existing cemetery, according to Maxar Technologies.

“According to recent media reports, Russian soldiers took the bodies of people killed in Mariupol to this location,” the company said in a statement.
