Ukraine: Ukraine says rebels shelled Mariupol suburb
Local officials in Eastern Ukraine have accused pro-Russian separatists of shelling a village on the outskirts of the key government stronghold of Mariupol overnight.
Heavy blasts between Sunday night and Monday morning damaged 52 homes in Sartana, only 16 kilometres (10 miles) outside Mariupol, local government representative Stepan Mahsma said on his Facebook account. The shelling hit five homes, killing two civilians and wounding six.
On Monday the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office in Donetsk region issued a statement, accusing the Donetsk People’s Republic of instigating what it called a “terrorist attack.”
