Live on Twitter: Russia breaks ceasefire in Mariupol

 

War in the Donbas

Explosions have now been confirmed near Mariupol, reports a number of western journalists including Will Vernon and Fergal Keane of BBC, Roland Oliphant of the Telegraph, and Shaun Walker of The Guardian. The press service of the DNR has also stated that they are storming the city.

Recall that yesterday Russia’s ambassador to the OSCE anticipated the “liberation” of the city by Russian-backed forces, falsely stating that the region was 90% “ethnic Russian” and that this would be “natural.” (the region is actually 38% Russian)
