DONETSK, January 24. /TASS/. The Defence Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic called clear misinformation materials in Ukrainian media saying houses in Mariupol had been shelled by the militia.
“This is clear misinformation. The forces of militia have not opened fire towards Mariupol or its houses,” spokesman of the defence ministry told the Donetsk news agency.
The ministry says the militia was holding the fort at Novoazovsk (a town 40 kilometres from Mariupol, controlled by the DPR) and they were not delivering any shelling there.
A man, living in Mariupol, who witnessed the shelling, told TASS “the shell came from the Ilyich plant, where shooting was heard. This territory is controlled by Ukraine’s Armed Forces.”
The Mariupol Mayor’s Office reports three people were killed, information on the injured is not finalised yet.
