Rockets kill 30 in Mariupol as rebels launch offensive

The Kremlin-backed terrorists indiscriminately shelled residential areas of the city, murdering at least thirty innocent residents and injuring at least 90 others, including women, children and the elderly.

The video shows Zakharchenko’s official announcement. One of the heads of pro-Russian terrorists stated that attack on Mariupol, the city controlled by Ukraine, was started.

Mariupol has a population of 500,000 and is in a highly strategic position, sitting between rebel-held eastern areas and Crimea, which was annexed by Russia last March. The city saw heavy fighting in August.
