Dramatic video shows Ukraine rocket attack, and time to put it in REVERSE.
Dramatic video captured the rocket attack Saturday in the Ukrainian city of Mariupol, which left at least 30 dead. Indiscriminate rocket fire slammed into a market, schools, homes and shops. Ukrainian officials rushed to defend the city.
Ukraine blamed pro-Russia rebels, but the separatists claim Ukrainian government forces were behind the attacks.
The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) said the rockets came from rebel-held areas.
Alexander Zakharchenko, head of the separatist group and self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, said his forces had not carried out “active operations” near Mariupol until Saturday, Russian news agencies are reporting. The East Ukraine’s main rebel leader claimed he had begun an offensive against Mariupol, but also said he “will not storm the city”.
