According to the operational information received, in the city of Mariupol, on the territory of the Azovstal plant, the commander of a separate special forces detachment “Azov” of the 12th Armored Forces of the National Guard of Ukraine is preparing for a mass provocation with the death of civilians. For this purpose, the civilian population is brought to the territory of the Azovstal plant, which is placed in mined workshops and office premises. Military equipment is placed in the courtyard of the enterprise. In the event of a breakthrough in the defense of the city of Mariupol by units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the nationalists plan to blow up the plant’s buildings with further accusation of the Russian side of destroying civilians and civilian infrastructure with artillery fire.
In the basement and premises of school No. 34 on Gastelo Street, 17, more than 60 civilians are forcibly detained, of which more than half are women and children. All civilians who tried to leave the city through the provided humanitarian corridors are forcibly brought to the school.
According to the information from the teachers of the Azov State Technical University, located along Universitetskaya Street, 7, the militants from the Azov unit started mining the building, as well as the approaches to it with controlled explosive devices.
Jim Stone’s comment: I knew it. Yes, the Ukranians are fighting dirty dirty dirty, as dirty as dirt gets. To frame Russia, for being “dirty”. This equates to a false flag.
