Residents of Mariupol Protected the Local Police Department From the Separatists

More

In Mariupol, a group of 100 citizens organized itself into a self-defense unit and protected  the building of the local administration of the Ministry of Interior Affairs from an attack by separatists.  A couple of hundred separatists attacked the members of the self-defense group. The separatists used both explosion packages and stun grenades, and they beat up women.  According to journalists, 11 pro-Ukrainian activists have been hospitalized. The militia did not interfere in the fight. At the moment, the building of the Ministry of Internal Affairs is functioning normally; the separatists did not succeed in capturing it.
