DONETSK, May 10, /ITAR-TASS/. Mariupol, a city in Ukraine's Donetsk region, announced Saturday the day of mourning for the victims killed in the May 9 shooting.
"May 10, 2014, is announced the day of mourning in the city of Mariupol in connection with the tragic events on May 9, 2014 in which people were killed," the City Council said in a statement, expressing sincere condolences to the victims' families.
