Work is under way to reinforce Mariupol, a coastal city on the Sea of Azov, and its outskirts, 5 Kanal TV reported at 9am Kyiv time on 9 October.

The defence line of this strategic city has three levels. The first and the second ones are the checkpoints outside the city. Additional concrete roadblocks are being installed there at the moment. The military are inspecting every vehicle going from Donetsk to Mariupol. Volunteers are bringing warm clothes and food for the servicemen.

The third level of the defence line is inside the city.
Training for policemen in charge of Mariupol defence is also being held in the city.

On 8 October, the Interior Ministry’s Sokil special purpose battalion, together with the Mariupol traffic police, inspected private vehicles and checked the IDs of drivers on Pobedy Avenue to detect the subversive and reconnaissance groups.
