Meanwhile, in Mariupol:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Col. Cassad claims Ukrainian artillery undershot Novorossiyan positions on the eastern outskirts of Mariupol and accidentially hit a residential area instead, citing his informants in Mariupol. At the time of this post, Ukrainian and pro-Ukrainian sources were mostly silent. The only report I could find is an article by a local Mariupol website claiming that the artillery strike was conducted by Novorossiyan forces. There are conflicting reports on VK regarding the shelling - pro-Ukrainian residents of Mariupol blame Novorossiyan forces, pro-Russian residents blame the Ukrainian forces.
Videos: 1 (the author claims the artillery strike was launched from Ukrainian-controlled town of Stary Krym), 2, 3, 4.

Looks like this time the shell trajectories were steep and it'd be possible to determine the direction where they came from... If only there were more useful photos.

I bet you my left arm to be severed that results will still contradict each other - opposite sides will blame it on enemy, no matter what.

The (designated) good guys cannot lie, obviously.

Link in German.
15 dead apparently, and the seperatists are starting a major offensive according to NATO after having been supplied with heavy weaponry. Aaaaand everybody's talking about a land corridor to Crimea.
Knit, what was that about north wind blowing? And - a bit earlier - about the impossibility of Russian troops in Ukraine?

Ukraine shelled Mariupol? That Russian scum dare to say that? I wish a nuke on Moscow. Russian or otherwise. It is not important

That was before I actually got told about there really being Russian troops in Ukraine by competent people. But the north wind is, apparently, blowing in Donbass now, meaning that the regular Russian army is either already helping the rebels, or is likely to help them soon.

Russia's been waging a hybrid war in Ukraine since the Donbass uprising happened.

That's clear - I meant the bit where now even you say that Russia is invading another country.

Haven't they been saying that for quite a while now? Or we are invading Poland/Baltic states now? Misread the post, Helgo. Let Knit explain.

So far it seems that every nation with nukes invades intervents whatever part of the world they feel like backing it with whatever reason they have imagination to create or emphasize. The rights of man? Forget it, in global scale it is still the right of the strong.
