According to a city council Telegram message, bombs are once again landing on residences in Mariupol, a Black Sea port city.
According to a social media post by Ukraine’s deputy prime minister, a relief convoy attempting to enter the city’s south-eastern outskirts has also been forced to turn back due to violence.
According to Reuters, a Ukrainian presidential advisor stated on social media that Russia is purposely preventing citizens from fleeing the city since it has failed to control the strategically crucial port.
The city in the south-east has seen heavy combat. According to Ukrainian officials, a maternity facility was bombed yesterday, killing three people, including a toddler.
