On January 24th the terror in Ukraine continued. A Ukrainian port city of Mariupol was shelled for no particular reason. A statement released by the Ukrainian defense council carries the information that three attacks were made from different rocket launchers on and around Mariupol. Many schools, homes and market places were taken in effect to this horrendous act.
It is believed by the Mayor that this violent act was carried out by Russian Militants who demand an extension of the territory of land. The president of Ukraine also called a halt his trip to Saudi Arabia and rushed back to coordinate with government officials to deal with the situation.
Mariupol being the only land link between Russia and Russia captured Crimean is the valuable asset to the Russians. If Russia succeeds in capturing this land they will have a big benefit on their side.
Although the UN has made many attempts to resolve the fighting, but the increasing attacks of rockets and other artillery have made all attempts null and void. The civilian death toll has reached as high as 15000 people. In the recent attack on Mariupol nearly 30 people have died adding more count to the already high death toll. Many community members have lost loved ones and others are in great distress. Numerous people have come forward to donate blood and other monetary assets.
