Armed Russian mercenaries shell the living neighborhood in Mariinka, Donetsk region, trying to make it look as if Ukrainian forces were behind the attack. The video filmed by Russian forces ended up in the hands of soldiers of Ukraine's 24th Detached Mountain Infantry Brigade.

It shows the shells hitting the residential quarters in the war-affected town. The Ukrainian military explained that the enemy provokes them to return fire and then blame them with disrupting the ceasefire.

However, the government forces stay put and abstain from firing in return. The video record will be handed over to the Joint Control and Coordination Centre.
