A pro-Russian militia attempting to attack a Ukrainian military base in Mariupol was repelled after a firefight, leaving three people dead. The attack comes as Ukrainian forces continued an “anti-terrorism” operation.
According to media reports, the attacking militia, which could have numbered over 500, attacked the base in the port city with stun grenades and fire bombs. The Ukrainian troops returned fire, touching off a twenty-minute shootout. Some pro-Russian militias have seized Ukrainian armored vehicles.
