A series of strong explosions was heard near Mariupol in the evening of Feb. 12, Petro Andriushchenko, an advisor to the mayor of Mariupol, wrote on his Telegram channel.
Invading Russian troops quartered in a school in the village of Nikolske, to the north-west of the city, were hit, Andriushchenko wrote.
The sounds of explosions and of secondary explosions were heard across Mariupol area.
The Russian occupation authorities said that the strike was carried out allegedly with OTR-21 Tochka tactical ballistic missiles.
Andriushchenko wrote, however, that this couldn't be true.
Russian forces have positioned snipers at the exit points of the city, as Russia’s FSB security service has failed to deal with guerrilla activities in the region, he said.
Andriushchenko has reported earlier that the number of Russian troops in and near Mariupol had increased to 30,000 soldiers.
On Feb. 7, another series of strong explosions was heard in Mariupol, this time in the area of the seaport.
