MARIUPOL, Ukraine (AP) — A Ukrainian police officer in Mariupol has warned the besieged port city has been “wiped off the face of the earth” and has pleaded with the American and French presidents to provide his country with a modern air defense system.

Mariupol police officer Michail Vershnin posted a video from a rubble-strewn street on Friday.

The officer said children and elderly people are dying and urged President Joe Biden and President Emmanuel Macron to save civilian lives and make good on their promises to help the country fend off the attack by Russia.
